What hurler inspires you/why?
Brian B: Our own team mate Declan Connolly inspires me a lot as the amount of work he puts in and the passion he has for game really drives you to be more like him.
Brian C: David 'gook' skehill inspires me because he is a very determined hurler and a leader on and off the pitch.

What other sportsperson/person inspires you, why?
Brian B: Probably Brian o Driscoll as the respect everyone has for him and the injuries he suffered from but kept coming back and back to play at the highest level.
Brian C: Paul O Connell is a sportsman who inspires me bacause he is a great leader and he gives it his all every match.

Whats Minor squad like and what good teams are out there?
Brian B: Minor squad is very strong again this year and serious competition for the forwards especially,but all we can do is our best. Sure Kilkenny Limerick Waterford are all very strong but we can't look past our first game against the Ulster champions.
Brian C: Minor squad this year is very strong, there is a lot of lads there from last year, limerick look strong this year but we will take it step by step.

Thoughts on the other lad?Brian B: Brian is playing extremely well with the club this year and is one of our stand out stars so far so hopefully he can impress Mattie and get the start and by the way he is going he won't be far off it.
Brian C:  Brian is playing excellent stuff this year with both Killimordaly and Galway, he is also going well on the women side of things, he has a girlfriend now for a few months.

With all time you spend at sport any other hobbies?
