Getting to know your Team-Mates

 Who’s your best friend on the team? Me and Liam Healy go back a long time and also share a birthday 

Who’s the quickest? I’m not sure I do be too far behind to see that far, think the Callaghan’s are quick enough 

Who’s the Joker/Messer of the team? Eoin O’Connor and Adam Tyrell are a deadly duo 

Who’s the most skilful? Ciaran Kelly could play for Barcelona with some of the step overs he does 

Who’s the best trainer? Wayne Middleton is the only one we have 

Who’s the worst time keeper on the team? Nobody comes to mind for this one which isn’t a bad complaint to have 

Who is the best dancer? I like to think I’m good 

Who is the worst dancer? I think I also take this one it’s a bit hit and miss with me, however Eoin O’Connor at the Broadway was septic 

Who’s the worst dress sense? Few adventurous people on the team like the time Houlie wore a flower shirt think he watched too much Narcos and thought he was Pablo Escobar and Ryan Moore wears things that would be too tight for Freddy Mercury 

Finally, who’s the manager’s pet?? Don’t think Kenny has any pets
