My greatest fear is losing anything to Peter Casey! No, I’m actually afraid of heights more than anything else. There’s no particular reason for it, I just always have been.

I am happiest when I’m with my two year-old niece. Spending time with her is just the greatest.

My greatest achievement has been making my parents proud.

If money was no object, I would spend my time playing for Na Piarsaigh. The club is so important to me and I’ve always loved my time there.

My advice to a classroom of children would be to stop playing Fortnite!

My sporting hero is Davy Russell.

The one song that I always love listening to is anything by James Blunt. He’s a lunatic on Twitter as well.

 

My favourite place in the world? That’s a tough one… I’ve never been there but I’d love to go to Bora Bora, it looks incredible, I’ve always wanted to go there.
