Best away day room-mate?
Stayed in Roscommon a while back with the team. Nice spot, but don’t think we will be allowed back anytime soon.

Who would headline your house party?
I would let the young boys on the team at it, Johnny Concannon and DJ Dylan Gallagher, always good for the tunes.

You win the Lotto, first thing you would buy?

Favourite TV show and why?
Power. Everything you want in a TV show.

Eating refresher bars at the Parke blitz.

Who is the joker in the dressing room?
Johnny Concannon. He’s always messing (on and off the pitch)

Went to Liverpool a couple of years ago with a few of the lads on the team. Great spot, never saw Niall Walsh smile as much.

Winning the minor West Mayo title.

Who is the best player you have played alongside?
Played with Andy Glennon in college – a gifted footballer with a brilliant left peg. With Islandeady, would be Vinnie Feeney, a quality footballer.

What’s the best thing about being a Mayo club footballer?
The standard of football is very high.

Who is the best player you have played against?
I played against Ryan McHugh in college. A very good all round footballer, lightning quick and intelligent.

The fixture calendar.

Can you tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
I won an under-10 All-Ireland racquetball title by winning just one game.

Connacht Gold Protein Milk, Connacht Gold Chocolate Protein Milk and Connacht Gold Strawberry Protein Milk.

Best advice you ever got?
Don’t do each-way bets on anything less than 5/1s.
