Getting to know your Team-Mates

Amber 5

Who’s your best friend on the team?
We’re a close team, which is great! Most of us have played together since underage; Sheena gets the nod because she gets my nervous-ness on game days!!

Amber 4

Who’s the tough nut of the team?
There’s a few, but glad to have both Shauna Doyle’s on my team! Sarah Bell takes no lip either 🙂

Who’s the quickest?
I’ll let the Curleys argue over this one! 😉

Who’s the Joker/Messer of the team?
Aisling Murray and Shauna Murray Doyle have both had me in knots before a few too many games!

Who’s the most skilful?
Niamh Doyle can pull off saves that would impress Tom Corley!! Also I’ve seen Lorraine McSorely put the ball in the top corner a nice few times.

Who’s the best trainer?
The competition is incredible this year, everyone pushing for a place!!

Who’s the worst time keeper on the team?
The Curleys used to make me look good on time keeping – but this year the boys are very strict we need to be on time!!

Who is the best dancer?
Poor Hannah would have been in line but her dodgy ankles won’t allow her to achieve this title 😉

Who is the worst dancer?
If Kate Hannon’s zip lining moves are anything to go by…..similar to bambi on ice! 😉

Who’s the biggest whinger on the team?
For someone who’s studying medicine in college and found the time to complete the army reserve course, she’ll surely have a lot more to whinge about now!! Ciara we love you!

Funniest nickname on the team?
I think they’re all pretty normal: Brucie, Ci, Juice, Rach.. Also its Dearbhail not Dervla!! Think it cracked me more for years than Dearbhail. We need more nicknames as we’ve 5 Ciara’s on the team!!

Finally, who’s the manager’s pet??
Seamus Fingleton!;)
