Favourite Sports Person? Though one, so many to choose from, probably Brian O'Driscoll
Biggest influence on your sporting life so far? Another tough one, sport was always a major influence in our house, being a proud Lark and all, but I know this will sound like I am trying to say the right thing but since Owen came to the club he has been a huge influence, especially being a goalie himself, the level of coaching and experience he brings has made a huge difference in my hockey career.

Favourite music? Any kind
Favourite movie? Top Gun/Dirty Dancing, oldies are the best
Who’s the tough nut of the team? Martina, who else would play on with a broken knee cap
Who’s the quickest? Definitely me, have you not seen me over a yard, lightning haha
Who’s the joker of the team? Natalie always up to something.
Who’s the worst time keeper on the team? Ciara since Louise is injured at the moment, close call though.
Any advice for someone looking to try a new sport? Never be afraid to give it a go, you're never to old or too young to try it, just get out of the house and do something, believe me when I say I have made friends for life in this club, no other club like it, if Carlsberg did clubs this would be the one.
