Best thing about playing for the club?
The craic with the lads you wouldn’t normally talk to – Keavo and Eddie Smoorebart.

Best thing about social distancing?

Trying to avoid the Grodie-lock.

The one where I kicked 1-2 from play.

Mayo Masters legend Pat Mulchrone.

Favourite post-match meal and drink?
Danollas and candy shake (Kinder Bueno).

Best advice you ever got?
Don’t put Smoore on wet ground or you’ll have to tow him out again.

Sum up winning a Connacht Final in three words?
Class, class, class!
