Who brought you to your first training session at Creggs?
“My first training session at Creggs, my Dad brought me out. It was under-8’s and I didn’t really have a clue about rugby or the rules or whatever but he brought me out on the Saturday morning and I got into it from there, really enjoyed my first session and went back all the Saturdays after that. I played all the underage after that with Creggs, up until under-13 and I suppose the rest is history.”
What was the Creggs Community’s reaction when you were called up to train with the Irish squad?
“The Creggs community has been really supportive of me, not just since I got called into training with the Irish squad, but before then for the last couple of seasons they’ve been really supportive and I’m really grateful for that. They’re always sending me messages of good luck and a lot of them come to a lot of the games, and obviously, last year having Adrian Leddy as president of Connacht was great. I’m really thankful for the support I receive.”
