Quickfire questions with Conor Heneghan 



Quickfire Questions

Name: Conor Heneghan
Club: Kiltimagh Age: 36
Occupation: Operations Manager,

Strangest thing you did to pass the time during lockdown?

Started learning Spanish on Duolingo, still at it!
Biggest thing you miss about using the dressing-rooms?
Moving the young lads out of my designated seat, closest to the door. And being able to have a shower, of course.

Best thing about social distancing?
For a while, it meant none of the dreaded ‘Powerbox’ drills at training. Pity that didn’t last.

Best thing about wearing a mask?
If I’m wearing it, it means I haven’t left it behind me in the house... again.

Favourite song to wash your hands to?
In my house at the moment, it’s ‘The Bear Went Over the Mountain’ by The Countdown Kids.

What’s your guilty pleasure TV show?
The Chase. No other quiz show comes close.

Which three celebrities would you meet for a socially-distant drink?
I’m a Man United fan so I’ll go for Harry Maguire and two Greek policemen. The evening is bound to pass without incident.

One thing people don’t know about you?
Loads never knew about our appearance on Celebrity Bainisteoir until it was repeated on TV a few weeks ago. It hasn’t aged too well.

Best place for a Mayo staycation?

If you could go anywhere in the world right now?
I’d say Whistler in Canada, some spot.

One old match you’d love to watch back?
Kiltimagh v Spiddal, 2009 Connacht Junior Final.

What do you miss most about life pre-Covid?
I don’t have a huge social life these days but even having the option to go for a pint without conditions in a pub. That and crowds at matches.

Sum up the new normal in three words?
Wash your hands.
