What do you like doing on your day off?
Relaxing, when I'm not training I just like to be lazy and sleep a lot.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
Double chicken breast pitta (mango and lime) with chips from Nandos, it has become a regular eating spot for our strength and conditioning g group.

What has been your proudest moment?
Being a part of the Irish u17 4x100m Relay team that won gold in the 2009 Schools International Championships.

When my dad and I were in a car accident last year, the night before my first ever driving lesson.

I don't embarrass easily, I just get on with it.

What music do you like?
I like most things; I'm not picky when it comes to music.

Asafa Powell. He has been a bit overshadowed by Bolt recently but he was fastest man in the world when I became interested in athletics.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
Our last family holiday to Seefeld, Austria. We went to the same hotel for 8 years in a row for a walking holiday; we enjoyed the beautiful country and food.

To graduate from university as a physiotherapist and to make a senior relay team for an international meeting.
