Any superstitions: Wearing my Thurles Fresh Milk wristband every game since 2012
Something we don’t know about you: I once starred as villager no.2 in a primary school play. The acting didn’t work out surprisingly!!
I wear Mycro because… as the game has become faster and more physical the Mycro helmet gives me the most protection and prevents head injury, which could affect my life outside of hurling.
