Most embarrassing moment playing hurling

When I was younger I was running in after a high ball keeping my eye on the ball, the ball went over the bar and I ran into the post very embarrassing!

Biggest moaner on county panel & club panel

County – Cillian Buckley, always moans about training and going to the gym. Club – Paul Buggy loves a good moan

Three teammates you would bring with you to a deserted island

Conor Fogarty – He’s a survivor, would thrive in the outdoors. Richie Hogan – Very organised , he would bring all the essentials. John Joe Farrell – For his stories

Three teammate you wouldn’t bring to a deserted island –  Cillian Buckley – We’d have to listen to him moan the whole time, we’d have to dress him. Wouldn’t be able light a fire.  TJ Reid- he’d only worry about himself, all he’d talk about is his bulls. Michael Fennelly – he’d probably be injured

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

When I was young, I was at a campfire match in a neighbouring parish, while the match was on I ran into the dressing room to go to the toilet. While I was in there, I could hear the dressing room door open and the camogie team all walked into the dressing room. I was too embarrassed to walk out and hid in the toilet for about 5 minutes. Eventually I decided I had to make a run for it, I opened up the door and ran as fast bright red in the face as I could out of the dressing room. The team cheered as I ran out of the room, took me a long time to get over it!
