A is for ACTOR…If you were an actor, who would your leading lady be?
Angelina Jolie.

B is for BOREDOM…What do you take on a long journey to keep you occupied/amused?
My iPOD.

C is for CARTOONS…Who is your favourite cartoon character?
Homer Simpson

D is for DESTINATION…What is your favourite town/city and why?
Definitely Dublin, it’s my hown town and I love it there.

E is for ELECTRONIC…Are you a gadgets person and what is the most hi-tec piece of equipment you own?
No, I’m not really. The best thing I have is probably my laptop.

F is for FAMOUS…What’s the best/worst thing about being famous?
I wouldn’t know because I wouldn’t describe myself as being famous, but I suppose if I was it would be the lack of privacy you have.

G is for GROUNDHOG…Which day would you like to repeat over and over again?
Playing in the Millennium Stadium at Cardiff in the Play-Off Final when I was on loan with Queens Park Rangers in May, 2003. Although we lost to Cardiff, it was a very special day and I wouldn’t mind repeating that again.

H is for HARASS…What annoys you, or winds you up?
I’m quite relaxed, so nothing really winds me up.

I is for ICON…Who is your all-time favourite sports person?
There are quite a few that spring to mind but Michael Jordan is probably my favourite — he just dominated his sport like no-one else has done.

Cheese, beans and tuna.

K is for KARAOKE…If you had to sing a song, which one would it be?
While I was at QPR, on my first away game the lads had an initiation for me which was to sing in front of the team at dinner. I sang ‘Wonderwall’ by Oasis, so if I had to do karaoke, it would be that one.

L is for LUCKY…Do you have a lucky charm or a superstition?
I don’t really but if I play well in a game then I’ll try to do the same preparations for the next one.

M is for MOVIES…What’s the last film you saw?
