JUVENILE / SCHOOLS
FELLOW IRISH SOCIETIES
Which team do you look forward to playing the most and why?:
Clann na hOman
Favorite Restaurant in Dubai:
The Dhow and Anchor. Iâ€™ve been there once. The foodâ€™s nice and it sounds sophisticated and upmarket.
Favourite band or musician?:
Radiohead, The Smiths, Joy Division â€“ great tunes to get the boys pumped up in the dressing room..
Growing up who was your all-time favourite player?:
Frankie Dolan â€“ kicked 25 points in two matches on Roscommonâ€™s whirlwind journey to the dizzying heights of the All â€“ Ireland Quarter Finals in 2003. It was like the Rossiesâ€™ version of Italia â€™90! Craic.
If you could be another teammate for a week who would it be and why?
Cathal Oâ€™Mahony â€“ Iâ€™d just love to know what it feels like to box Paudie Garvey! ïŠ
Who is your dream date?:
Which teammate would be voted off Big Brother first and who would win?:
As you know, thereâ€™s been a lot of friction in the club lately. The John Terry/Wayne Bridge scenario that has divided the club has been well documented. Iâ€™d think Iâ€™d like to see James Doherty and Paul Downes in the Big Brother house together. I donâ€™t know whoâ€™d win or whoâ€™d lose but itâ€™d be brilliant television!
What is your nick name?:
Now â€œRizzâ€ but when I first moved out I joined the club with Downesy, Scully and the now semi â€“ retired â€œBrack Attackâ€. The much loved, long serving Celtsâ€™ hero Shane Fowley christened me â€œThe Other Guyâ€ due to nobody knowing my name and because I had no friends. Sound.
What is your favourite movie?:
The Road â€“ a post apocalyptic drama about a man and his son who are attempting to find safety in a world that is slowly dying. It also has cannibals. Class!
If you could attend any sporting event in the world, what would it be?:
All â€“ Ireland Final â€“ too many ads at the superbowl; itâ€™d only annoy me!
What would you change about GAA games (if any)?:
The days of going up to Tuam supporting the Rossies in June with the â€œtar meltinâ€™, â€œice â€“ cream meltinâ€™ and the â€œcuckoo singinâ€™ are long gone. Get rid of the outdated provincial championship and replace it with the proposed â€œChampions Leagueâ€ style format. Run the championship off by August, club fixtures by November and let the lads have a few pints at Christmas.
In ten years I hope to be:
make the Inters!
