Opponents – Tiernán Rushe talks tasty matches, jinxes and men who’re hard to beat

Name:

Tiarnán Rushe.

Age:

24.

Teams played for:

Ballyholland Harps.

Which opposition ground do you like playing on and why?

Longstone and Burren are usually two tasty enough away fixtures.

Which opposition ground do you dislike going to and why?

Bryansford. We have yet to put in a good performance down there against them in league or championship.

What team have you enjoyed the most success against?

I would say Loughinisland in recent years, but I’ve probably just jinxed us for this year’s championship.

Which team have you enjoyed least success against?

Clonduff are usually hard to beat.

Which opposition player have you enjoyed marking?

CJ Barr is the easiest player I’ve ever marked, hands down.

Which opposition player have you disliked marking?

Ryan McAleenan sticks to you like glue.

Which player would you transfer in from a team you have come up against?

Donagh McAleenan, Warrenpoint.

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

Downpatrick – same colours as Celtic.

What’s the most frustrating defeat you have experienced?

Carryduff in the semi-final of the championship last year. To lose by a point after extra-time was hard to take.

What’s the most satisfying victory you have experienced?

Beating Downpatrick down there with 12 men a couple of years ago was quite satisfying. Mayobridge in the championship two years ago is another that sticks out.

Which team, apart from your own, do you think could be set for big things in the coming years?

Warrenpoint.
