Greatest Influence on your career: Parents and my late uncle Ger Dineen, he got me playing GAA for the first time with the Rockies. I’ve come a long way since then though.

Any other comments you would like to include: I was absolutely gutted not to make the 7’s panel last year, had my gear bag packed and all. One of the lowest points in my GAA career to date. Don’t think I’ve ever really recovered from it since.
