13 questions for Kerry footballer Darran O'Sullivan

Darran is a fan of shepherd's pie, House of Cards, Dave McIntryre, Messi and especially Giggsy.

Which professional athlete would you swap lives with?

Has to be a soccer player with the money they earn to play a game they love. I’ll go for Messi.

Are you a Netflix/Box Office binger? Any recommendations?

Netflix. House of Cards and Narcos were brilliant.


Technology you can’t live without?

iPhone, I’m always glued to it.

One team-mate you’d have in your corner in tag-team MMA?

Kieran O’Leary.... He’d have all the moves, sneaky out too!!!

The worst book/movie you forced yourself to read/watch all the way through

The last Hunger Games film. I thought it would never end.

Favourite GAA pundit or commentator?

First sporting hero?

Ryan Giggs, I was obsessed with him growing up.

Your last meal before training and first food afterwards?

Before training it can vary, but I like a bit of Sheperd’s pie. After training it would be a Kinetica recovery shake and then tuck into something like potatoes, pasta or chicken.

When did you last wear the county tracksuit top angling for a freebie?

I’ve never tried that but if I was going to do it, it would be into a car dealership. You might as well aim big!

What’s the one rule change you’d like brought into the game?

If the rules were a bit clearer it would be a big help.

On Tinder? How soon do you let it slip you’re a county man?

I’m lucky enough that I’m well settled so I don’t use Tinder.

Couple of good ones floating around: Kaiser, Stats, Duck Arse, Dishonest Denis!

Anything with an upbeat tempo.
