What was your most memorable game?   Ballyboden in 2012 as the confidence gained by that win was the catalyst for everything that has come since.

Who is the worst singer in the team?:      Paul Schutte does a mean version of ‘My Girl’, and better still when my auld lad has the flash from his camera phone shoved up Paul’s nostrils

What piece of advice would you give to young Cuala Players?
When you’re pucking with your Bro Montanas, make sure to alternate your striking side for every second ball.

Who would you say has the harder job, goalkeeper, backs, midfields or forwards?:         A midfielder, because the game can sometimes pass you by no matter how much you run. You need to be mentally strong to keep gambling on breaks and puckouts etc to get yourself into it
