Who would be the first per­son you would in­vite to your birth­day party?

My mom, Clare.

Favourite say­ing?

There’s no road long enough.

Favourite record?

At the mo­ment, Ari­ana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ – an epic way to deal with a breakup. It’s Bey­once’s ‘Me, My­self And I’ for our gen­er­a­tion.

Favourite book?

I’m a dis­as­ter when it comes to read­ing, but I re­cently or­dered Sh­eryl Sand­berg’s Lean In and I’m lov­ing it.

Favourite film?

A Time To Kill.

It’s heavy go­ing but an amaz­ing story.

Favourite au­thor?

See above! But I did re­cently lis­ten to Maeve Binchy’s ap­pear­ance, and I reckon if I was a reader, she’d be my favourite. Desert Is­land Discs

Favourite ac­tor / ac­tress?

Good old Ju­lia Roberts.

Favourite mu­si­cian?

My grandad, Chris Droney.

Most em­bar­rass­ing mo­ment of your life?

I don’t tend to get em­bar­rassed eas­ily. I try and flip the mo­ment into a piece of comedic gold! Well, that’s how I see it in my head any­way.

Favourite food/drink/stim­u­lant?

Ƃ flat Ühite and }Àanola slice fÀom the o‡ Cal Kitchen in Castle­knock.

TV pro­gramme?

Love Is­land. It NEEDS to be­come a win­ter thing too.

Favourite TV per­son­al­ity?

Tommy Tier­nan. Love him as an in­ter­viewer.

Favourite item of cloth­ing? Most de­sir­able date?

Din­ner and wine, I’m eas­ily pleased!

Favourite method of re­lax­ation?

Go­ing over to my par­ents’ house for Sun­day roast and my Mom’s ap­ple crum­ble, and sit­ting into their re­cliner chair!

If you weren’t pur­su­ing your present ca­reer, what other ca­reer might you have cho­sen?

Ve­teri­nary, if I’d been smart enough to get the Leav­ing Cert points!

Big­gest thrill?

Jump­ing off the pier in Inis Oírr. Big­gest dis­ap­point­ment? My own cook­ing. Ev­ery time.

Your con­cept of heaven?

Hav­ing a few drinks with my grand­par­ents and ask­ing them ev­ery ques­tion I could.

Your con­cept of hell?

Dy­ing in IKEA and my soul be­ing trapped there for­ever.

What would be your dy­ing words?

This is in­tense! I hope it’ll be “I gave it hell”... be­fore slip­ping off to heaven. Fin­gers crossed.

Great­est am­bi­tion?

Hap­pi­ness.

Pe­riod of his­tory you’d most like to have lived in and why?

The ’80s, just to see if my par­ents were as cool as I imag­ine them to have been!

If you weren’t a hu­man be­ing which an­i­mal would you have cho­sen to be?

A dog in a good home. Bliss!

If you were told that the world was end­ing to­mor­row morn­ing, how would you re­act/what would you do?

I would go to Mc­Der­mott’s pub in Doolin, Co. Clare and hope they’d have a lock-in, with all my near­est and dear­est there. We’d have hot whiskeys and a sing song.

Your nom­i­nee for the world’s best­dressed per­son?

Blake Lively.

Favourite term of abuse?

“You’re a drip”. It’s not mas­sively of­fen­sive, but you still def­i­nitely wouldn’t want to be called one.

Big­gest fear?

Be­ing bit­ten by a rat. They’re my ul­ti­mate pho­bia.

Hu­man­ity’s most use­ful in­ven­tion?

The GHD!

Hu­man­ity’s most use­less in­ven­tion?

-elfie sticŽs° 7ho needs a selfie THAT bad?!
