Getting to know Daniel Goulding.
Q: Which professional athlete would you swap lives with?
A: I love the NFL so Cam Newton — Carolina Panthers, talented quarterback, loaded, and seems to be a funny man as well.
Q: Are you a Netflix/Box Office binger? Recommendations?
A: Netflix binger — Narcos and Making a Murderer were the last two I watched. House of Cards would be my favourite though.
Q: Technology you can’t live without?
A: My phone: seems to be an extension of my hand at this stage.
Q: Team-mate you’d have in your corner in tag-team MMA?
A: Barry O’Driscoll — loves a good wrestle and is as strong as an ox. I’d take care of the boxing #bambam
Q: The worst book/movie you forced yourself to read/watch all the way through?
A: Les Miserables, fell asleep in the cinema halfway through it.
Q: Favourite GAA pundit or commentator?

Q: Your last meal before training and first food afterwards?
A: Something light before training like Greek yoghurt, fruit, and granola. After training usually, meat, veg, and rice. A protein shake to recover as well. Might have a sneaky chocolate milk if training was very hard.
Q: When did you last wear the county tracksuit top angling for a freebie?
A: I’d chance going into car dealerships around Cork every so often. Funny, all these years and no one has picked up the hints.
Q: What’s the one rule change you’d like brought in?
A: Two points for a score from play outside the 45m and I’d bring in the mark for kickouts.
Q: On Tinder, how soon do you let slip you’re a countyman?
A: Not on Tinder — wasn’t around when I was single!

A: Donncha O’Connor — The Meerkat
