Team Talk Mag

1. Earliest GAA memory.

Drumquin winning the Division 2 League in 2005. Going to play in blitzes every Saturday morning always looked forward to that as well. 

 2. How much time do you give over to GAA each week? Can you give us a breakdown of an average week?

– Each week two training sessions & a game on a Sunday try squeeze a few runs in now and again as well. 

 3. The best GAA venue you have been to?

– Mc Girr Park Droimcaoin ! nothing will ever beat home🔴⚪️

4. Any school success of note?
Naw, no real success but enjoyed playing along with players like Keelan  Mc Donagh and Jude Campbell.

 5. Club/ County role models that you looked up to as a youth.

– Only one stands out when I was younger Ciaran Mc Donald from Mayo man was magical to watch! Even wanted my hair like his when I was a cub😅

 6. Other sports that you played or had an interest in.

– Play a bit of soccer when the Gaelic’s over nothing too serious just to get out on a Saturday!

7. Most difficult opponent you have faced in club football and why?

– Tough one, overall rated probably Stephen ONeill, but going to have to go with Johnny Harkin (tattyreagh). Man is a giant can fetch a ball and can’t be caught when going forward so I will go with him as my toughest opponent. 

 8.  Best player you have ever seen play Gaelic football.

– I’ll go with Brian Fenton or David Clifford two of my favourites. (Lele Patterson a close 3rd) 

 9. Are you happy enough to see the restart of club and county activities? 

– Yes brilliant to have it back was completely lost without it. Glad to have something to look forward to again.

10.  The best GAA match that you ever saw.

Tyrone vs Armagh in 2005, when Canavan knocked over the free in injury time to win it! 

 11.  Are you a fan of academies/development squads? Why?

– Yes playing football at a young age gives you a love for the game and a love for your club.

12. Your own involvement around the club.

Playing seniors at the minute. Hope to help out with the underage in the coming years. 

13.  How important is the GAA in your community?

It’s a big part of the community brings everyone together and keeps everyone out of badness 😂

14. Favourite county jersey (not Tyrone) 


15. What are your main strengths as a footballer?

Catching and going forward with the ball, mainly just wanting to always win! Free kicks would be a strong part of my game but Sean Mc Donagh thinks different 🙄
