Quick Q’s

Typical weekly training / game schedule: At the moment with the leaving cert its not as mad as usual but would still be out 2 to 3 times a week between club and county.

Favourite Manager(s), and why?:
Don Mc Mahon and Shane Ahearne.They both have a great ability to have fun while getting the hard work done at the same time. They always bring a great atmosphere and energy to training.

Sporting Hero:
Dj Carey for his skill and speed alone.

Best thing about being an intercounty player:
The chance to play with girls who have the same attitude and drive as yourself is great. Some great friends are also made along the way.

Funniest thing to ever happen:
Hard to nail it down to one but the car journeys last year to and from training and matches with Jennie Simpson and some of the girls were great crack.

Favourite team mate/player:
Tough one to pick just one. Would have to say Aisling Power and Niamh Rockett are great to play beside. Along with everything else their ability to pick out a pass is something else.

Hardest thing about playing at county level: You have to be very alert mentally at all times. Tune out for a second and your chance could be gone.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given: It is just as important for a forawrd to be able to defend because you will get as many scores from turnovers as from clean possesion

Three words other people would use to describe you: I hope that people would describe me as hard working, determined and a team player

The intermediate all Ireland with Waterford last year would have to be one of my proudest moments- A childhood dream fulfilled. Also the junior county title with the club was something special.
