I can’t think of any that come to mind.

Have to say Blathnaid Mc Laughlin from Moville and myself would always have a good night’s craic now.

There’s a few now, too many to name. They do their best dancing on the pitch
Which team mate is the loudest in the changing room:
Kate Keaney has to get the nod for this one
What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen happy in training/during a match:
No one moment comes to mind. There’s been too many especially with club there’s always a laugh.

Feeling too hungover from one of the club girls. I’ll not name and shame.
No big egos. All very down to earth players.

We all have our own regular seats we like to sit in, but having Nicole Gordon and Aisling nee close by always passes the journey.

Have to give Aisling nee the shout for the best, don’t think the next trip away would be a peaceful one if I didn’t.

Probably myself for the worst but all the girls generally look after themselves very well now.
Toughest opponent you have played against:
Have to give Geraldine this one. She’s so unpredictable with both feet.

Would have to say Maxi for this one.
What frustrates you most about the GAA?
I can’t really think of anything.
What’s the best thing about being part of the GAA?
Has to be the friendships and life long memories being made
