Name: Danielle Kelly     
Lives: Crossmolina 
Age: 23

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

Which living person do you most admire?
It has to be my mum.

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.

What or who is the love of your life?

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.

My dog, Ruby.
