11) Most embarrassing moment on/off the pitch: Letting in 7 goals in a game against Shamrocks underage, prob minor or u21, never forget it.
12) Superstitions or match day routines: None atal, just take each game as it comes.
13) Favourite Ballyhogue player both past and present. Why? Past: Sean O Neill surely counts as past by now, always performed well in games and his screams and shouts during a match are missed. Present: Noel Roche, can change a game at anytime, speed merchant.
14) Best Ballyhogue game you saw/played in. Best game I saw was junior b hurlers winning county final. Few games i played in were good, some we lost and some we won but for me it has to be semi final against St.James in Wexford Park even doh we lost by a few points.
15) Best part of playing with Ballyhogue. Playing with all the lads that I grew up with since we started from underage and the shite talk on a night out after a match in the pub.
16) Hopes for the season ahead. Hopefully get to a final in either football or hurling. Getting back to senior would be some achievement in football.
17) What team do you look forward to playing against? St. James and Glynn, few games in the past fee years have been entertaining and tough.
18) Most important skill in hurling/football. First touch in hurling prob the most important, and in football been able to kick with both feet, always gets you out of trouble.
19) Advice to younger players. Enjoy playing the game
