Would have to be winning the County Minor ‘C’ Championship under the tactician that is Alan Larkin.

In the dying moments of the County Final against Breaffy I saw a €5 note fly by my boot on the wet grass, so what did I do? Grabbed it and put it into my sock. It would have been a shame to leave it behind. I’m the first man to ever get paid for playing Gaelic.

Milk, turkey rashers and Gavin Roache. He loves his food.

Aim for the crossbar, if it goes over good and well, if it goes under all the better.
