Best Sporting Memory
Winning the County U21 title in 2009 was a great feeling because we put serious commitment and training into it that year. All thanks to Moo Camp!!
The scenes on the pitch in Port Laois after the final whistle when Limerick beat Wexford in in the All Ireland qualifiers to book a place in the All Ireland Quarter Finals in 2011 was a special day. It was great feeling and been part of the team too was a great experience.

Rule change you would like to see implemented
Getting rid of the square ball rule altogether.

Worst Sporting memory
Loosing the 2014 Intermediate County Final was an awful feeling. Loosing the Senior Relegation final in 2012 to St. Patrick’s too was a hard one to stomach.

Bad Habits
Giving up my seat in the dressing room to Conor Mullane would be one! But as the saying goes…..respect your elders!!

Biggest Sporting Influence and Why
My Parents, always there to support me and getting me playing the game at a young age. Milo McMahon: Excellent trainer and thought me a lot about the game. Joe Ryan: A huge clubman and has great passion for the club.

The reason I play for St. Senans is
To represent my family and the Parish. Putting on the Senans jersey and representing where you come from is a great honour.

One player you would like to be more like
Thomas O Sé when he played for Kerry. He Had a serious engine and was a real natural and direct footballer.

Best Piece of advice you have received
Enjoy playing the game while you can and make the most of it cause the day will come when you have to hang up the boots!
