Age: 
- 23

 

Height: 
- 6 ft 1

 

Occupation/College: 
- Student

 

Favourite Position & Why: 
- Centre forward. You’re always guaranteed to be up against a tough opponent and the action is all around you.

 

Least Favoured Position & Why: 
- Wing forward. Nothing worse than following a bombing wing back up the pitch.

 

Career Honours: 
- 1 Freshers All-Ireland Championship, 1 All-Ireland Junior Championship, 1 Mid Kerry Championship, 2 Mid Kerry Leagues, various underage titles.

 

Have you ever represented Kerry? (If so, give minor details): 
- Kerry Juniors

 

Biggest Influence on Your Career: 
- My family and my friends primarily. Previous managers also influenced me. Dan McKenna from Milltown Secondary School deserves a mention.

 

Most Memorable Sporting Moment: 
- Winning the Mid Kerry Championship in 2019. It was my first and I couldn’t believe the joy it brought to the parish. Shows the impact football has.

 

Biggest Sporting Disappointment: 
- Relegation from Senior to Intermediate status a few years back.

 

Toughest Opponents You've Faced: 
- Peter Cook of Galway. Trying to follow John Blenner Hassett in my first few years thought me a few things too πŸ˜‚.

 

Best Trainer On The Team: 
- Tough to split between Donal Dennehy, Pa Wren and David Roche.

 

Most Stylish Team Mate: 
- Cathal Moriarty. He’d wear the skinny jeans and cardigan on the pitch if he was allowedπŸ˜‚

 

First Into The Dressing Room: 
- The Roche's

​

Last Out Of The Dressing Room: 
- Few boys spring to mind when there’s rain. Thady O’ Sullivan deserves an honourable mention for his time keeping underage.

 

Funniest Teammate: 
- Jerome Flynn.

 

GAA Likes: 
- The friends and memories you make along the way.

 

GAA Dislikes: 
- Persistent fouling to slow the play down.

 

One rule you'd like to see either brought in or scrapped from GAA:
- Tweak the advanced mark, at the moment it’s too far out and slows the game down. Fine contested catches close to goal should be rewarded.

 

Player You Admired Most Growing Up: 
- Mike Burke and Darren O’ Sullivan.

 

Pre-Match Superstition: 
- Sitting in the same seat in the dressing room.
