Favourite game playing for UCC:

My faviourite game for ucc was one of my first games and the trinity tea party where we won 6-4 against trinity and I made 3 d´s on the endzone line. That game is what got me hooked.

Favourite game on a different team:

Playing in amsterdam with rebel would be my highlight outside of ucc. No game in particular, it was just so much fun to be out there playing after only 8 months of ultimate.

Ultimate players who’ve had the biggest impact on you:

Doc because he was my coach for the last year.

Funniest moment(s) with the team:

I am certain I have made enough mistakes for one of them to be funny with the team but I can´t think of one right now.

Favourite tournament and why?

Well it has to be devs since I have just a year of ultimate. Devs is a competition between all of the beginners of all of the colleges in ireland. It is the ambition of all beginners to win devs. We destroyed devs.

What makes you so dangerous on the pitch?

My height.

College course:

BioChem 2013-2017

How and why did you start playing ultimate?

I was told to go to the presentation evening for people thinking of joining by doc and I did and then went to a few trainings and made a few friends, had a few nights out and I´ve stuck to it since.

What would you be doing if you weren’t playing ultimate?

Getting fatter with less friends haha

Tell us something no one knows about you.

I have played guitar for 15 years? I don´t talk about it much so that should count.

Tell us a joke!

Two drums and a cymbal fall off a cliff.

Duh dum chh.

I never wanted to believe that my Dad was stealing from his job as a road worker.

But when I got home, all the signs were there.

I told my friend that she drew her eyebrows on too high.

She looked surprised.

Can´t pick just one 😀
