What is the best ground you have played in? The Showgrouds by a mile.

Who is the joker of the team? Ian Curran. He’d cut you in two with some of his one liners.

Apart from yourself who is the best player on the team? I’d better say Jimmy Walker or he’ll take the hump.

Who is the worst at training? Donegan. He comes once a week and spends the first hour with the physio!

Who has the worst dress sense? Me! Shocking, just shocking.

Who is the best player you have ever played with? Philly Hughes at Bessbrook. Also the laziest player I’ve ever played with!

If you had a super power what would it be? Extendable arms, for obvious reasons!

What are your interests outside of football? I like golf. I don’t get to play as often as I’d like though. I’ll play more when I retire which will be soon enough I’d say!

Finally, tell us something about yourself not many people know! I like to wear colourful and crazy boxers. Darren Mullen will be able to tell you all about them. He thinks they’re amazing!
