Name: Daire Dunne

Date of birth: 4/4/91

Height: 6″0 I think

Position: Centre back

Position you would like to play:

I kind of miss my midfield days you could get away with more, centre backs get away with nothing

Favourite club player:

It’s a tough one, Niall Hurley lynch, Eddie Heavey and Ger Naughton are personal heroes of mine

Favourite county player:

The whole Donegal team that beat Dublin, they are all my favourites at the moment

Biggest influence on your football career:

My Da,  despite knowing nothing about G.A.A he always made me go training and was always able to tell when I had a bad game

Best advice someone has given you:

Moggy told me if I eat properly I’ll lose weight and get fit quicker, seems simple but was effective advice

Best grounds you’ve played in:

Dr Cullen Park is a nice pitch

Best player you’ve played with:

I had a good midfield partnership with Adam Tyrell we just understood each other

Best player you’ve played against:

Johnny Doyle was a joy to watch that’s why I couldn’t keep up with him I wanted to see what he would do next

Sporting hero:

John Carew is a villa legend he once didn’t show up for a Europa league match because it was his birthday and he wanted to go to the strip club and no one cares about Europa league. You have to admire that

Aidan O’Shea

Career high:

When I was made captain this year

All of my many injuries
