If there was one thing you would change about the GAA, what would it be? This relates to smaller clubs with smaller group of player.  Clubs should name 15 players at the start of the year that can only play “First team” and the rest can play with the “second team”.  Even if “second team player” plays first team championship game then they should still be aloud play second team. That way the second team will still have numbers and gives all players in the club a chance of playing during the summer months and the club wont get fined for not being able to field games.


If you owned a race horse what would you call it? The Final Hurdle


In ten years time I hope to be? Fit, healthy, still playing and a few more medals in my pocket.
