Best memory from playing with the Harps?
This is a very difficult choice and I don't think I could choose just one. I have grown up playing with the Harps so there have been endless memories created over the years. Some of my fondest memories are those of the trips away we took as a team for various tournaments. My favourite was our trip down to Killarney at U13 for the Colm Cooper tournament. We ended up winning the tournament which was my first experience of winning a trophy.
The player that most inspires you?
Steven McDonnell- A player who I have a personal connection with and who I grew up watching play on the biggest stage. Seeing him lead Armagh to an All Ireland at 23 inspired me to strive for excellence no matter the age and ignited my passion to play inter-county football
The match you have most memories of?
Winning a Dublin Schools title with Skerries Community College in 2019, comprised of players from many different Harps age groups. We had lost the final the year previous so it was great to bounce back and win the title in my final year in the school.
Advice to a younger player?
Prioritize your enjoyment of football. Practicing your skills is important but I have always felt the more I enjoyed my football the more I excelled
Player you'd most like to play alongside?
Brian Fenton. The most dominant footballer of the last few years and a serial winner. It would be great to learn from his game.
Best advice you've received which helped your game?
Play to your strengths and try not overcomplicate things
Your proudest moment?
Starting for Dublin an All-Ireland final in Croke Park. I believe this is the ultimate goal of any young GAA player and to be able to have the opportunity to fulfill this dream was unforgettable. Although the result did not go our way it did not detract from the pride I felt running out onto the pitch for the first time.
Thanks Adam and best of luck with the Dublin U20’s, we are all behind you!
