What’s your idea of perfect happiness?
Sitting on a bus after winning a game, listening to Rachel Kearns belt out ‘Travelling Soldier’.

Probably make-up (not that I wear it that often).

What’s your favourite journey?
The journey home after winning a game is always a bit of craic.

When and where were you happiest?
When I was younger and back in school with not a care in the world.

Getting to an All-Ireland Final with the club this year.
