An chéad uair ag imirt iomána? Sa bhaile le m’athair ó bhí mé ábalta siúl.
When did you first play hurling? Started playing at my house with my father from I was fit to walk and hold a stick

An chomhairle is fearr a fuair tú: Éist leo siúd a shiúil an casán céanna romhat.
Best career advice you were given: Listen to those who have already been down the path. Win the ball, move yourself, move the ball. Simple but effective

An scil is tábhachtaí san iomáint: Ag ardú, bualadh agus greamú an tsliotair
The most important skill in hurling: Picking, striking and catching

Cad é a d’athrófá fán chluiche? Dhá phointe do chúilín ón taobhlíne.
What would you change about the game? Two points for a score from sideline cut.

Spórt is fearr taobh amuigh den iomáint: Peil agus rugbaí agus b’fhéidir sacar
Favourite sport other than hurling: I watch football and rugby and a bit of soccer

Agus mé óg, bhí mé ag iarraidh bheith… i mo phíolóta mar Maverick as Top Gun
When I was a child I wanted to be… a pilot like Top Gun’s Maverick

Cuimhne is fearr ar an pháirc: Ag baint amach Chraobh Uladh 2010 & ag baint Chraobh an Chontae anuraidh
Best hurling memory as a player: Reaching Ulster MHC final 2010 & winning last year’s Armagh SHC

Cuimhne is fearr as an pháirc: Trí mhórcheolchoirmeacha sa samhradh amháin
Best memory outside of playing: Going to see The Script, Mumford and Sons & Avicii all in one summer

Creid nó ná creid ach tá mé maith ag… Fifa agus an chócaireacht.
You may not know it, but I’m good at…FIFA and I’m a handy chef. Being an only child, you need to know how to cook.

An t-imreoir is fearr atá feicthe agat? An rí féin, Anraí Ó Seibhleáin
Who is the greatest player you have seen? When I first started watching hurling, Martin Storey from Wexford, but recently DJ or King Henry. I’ll go with Henry.

Who would you buy on a transfer market? Noel McGrath or Richie Hogan

Ag éisteacht le/ Currently listening to: Rihanna, Four Five Seconds and Avicii & Rick Astley, Never Gonna Wake You Up mashup

An t-aireagán is fearr riamh… iPhone, aip ann d’achan rud
The best invention ever… iPhone, it literally has an app for everything

Duine ar mhaith leat bualadh leo: Jennifer Lawrence ó na scannáin Hunger Games.
Person you would most like to meet: Jennifer Lawrence after the Hunger Games movies. She’s just lethal.

Gafa ar oileán mara, cad é an rud is mó a bheadh uait? Bia agus comhluadar
Marooned on a desert island what could you not be without?  Food for a start, but a bit of company would be hard to beat

I gceann deich mbliana, tá súil agam… bheith socraithe le clann agus ag cur deireadh le tréimhse rathúil imeartha.
In ten years’ time I hope to be…  settled down with family and coming to end of a successful playing career.
