Which team have you enjoyed least success against?

Clan Eireann at club level, but I think this is our year…

Which opposition player have you disliked marking?

A certain Dublin player that fell on top of me on a challenge match that resulted in me dislocating my thumb.

Carla Rowe. She works so hard all over the field, a very selfless player.

Which team, apart from your own, do you like to see do well and why?

Cork, a team I have huge respect for.

Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final in 2020. It was a heart-breaking defeat because we gave it our all.

Against Shane ONeill’s in the 2015 championship final. We came back from 11 points down with 10 minutes to go to end up winning.

Ballyhegan. My niece Cadhla and my nephew Dáire will be stars of the future in that team.
