Quickfire questions with Barry Redmond


Quickfire Questions

Name:Barry Redmond
Club:Castlebar Mitchels  Age:22
Lives:Balloor, Castlebar
Occupation: Warehouse Manager – Redmac

What’s your idea of perfect happiness?

Standing in goal and seeing Barry Moran actually track his man when he runs by him.

Which living person do you most admire?
My mother. (She said she would stop cooking me dinner if I didn’t say her).

What’s your greatest extravagance?
I would have to say chicken fillet rolls. For a man that plays a lot of sport I buy way too many of them.

What’s your favourite journey?
I went to San Diego for the summer and can safely say it was the best experience of my life!

What or who is the love of your life?
If Eamonn Tiernan kicks 1-7 again this weekend, and we get the job done, he’ll be the love of my life for the rest of my life.

When and where were you happiest?
Lying on the beach in San Diego getting burnt to a crisp while sipping a can.

Which talent would you most like to have?
I wouldn’t mind being able to swim. I get made fun of enough for not being able to.

What’s your greatest achievement?

Winning the West Mayo Junior B title a few years back (It’s about the only thing I’ve ever won while actually starting, ha ha).

What’s your most treasured possession?
My UL shorts with the zip pockets – easily the best thing I own or will ever own.

What’s your favourite pastime?
Anything to do with basketball - watching it, playing it, love it all.

What’s the quality you most like in a person?
People who have the patience to put up with the amount of pure rubbish I talk on a daily basis.

Who is your favourite footballer?
The two Ruddys – Philip and Luke – greatest one-two punch since Shaq and Kobe.

What’s your motto?
‘You do you’ – plain and simple.
