Ten Questions with Michael Murphy

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Michael Murphy

This week, puts the questions to Donegal's star forward and 2011 Ulster Championship winning captain Michael Murphy.

Q: What's the toughest skill in Gaelic Football to master?

A: I'd say kicking with the outside of the weaker foot. That's a very tricky one.

Q: What would you prefer, to win an All-Ireland Club title with Glenswilly or an All-Ireland County title with Donegal?

A: Can't choose. Both!

Q: What is your favourite intercounty jersey from a county outside your own?

A: I always liked the Offaly jersey actually. Similar colours to Donegal and it was just one that I liked.

Q: Who would you say is Ireland's greatest ever sportsman?

A: Couldn't look any further than Brian O'Driscoll at the moment.

Q: If you could choose one player from Gaelic Football history to play for Donegal in this year's championship, who would it be?

A: I suppose we're lucky in that we're playing with one of the greatest ever right now in Colm Cooper. So it would have to be him.

Q: What's the biggest sacrifice you've had to make in your life to become an intercounty player?

A: Time.

Q: What would you change about your own game?

A: Everything. Every facet of my game needs improving.

Q: Do you have a St. Patrick's Day routine and what will you be doing this time around?

A: Well we'll be training this Saturday so unfortunately the days of going to mass and then having the big dinners after are long gone. It's training time now!

Q: If you could have a specific skill from a specific player, what would be the skill and who would be the player?

A: That's a good one. I think it would have to be Colm Cooper's finishing.

Q: If you had to play for one other county, which one would it be?

A: I don't think it could be done. I really don't think it could be done I'm afraid. I'd retire!
