Tell us about a funny story from your hurling career….

Before the 2012 All Ireland replay, I was saying a few words and trying to rile lads up and as I finished I went to do a token slap of a hurl off some timber for theatrical effect so I let a swipe at the bench behind me that I’d been sitting on. But I didn’t realise that John Tennyson had sat down behind me as I was talking and I connected square with his knee! The recovering cruciate knee to make it worse. I sat back down with my tail between my legs. Sorry Tenno!
