“I swopped my football boots for a putter – still not sure if it was the right move!”

Favourite expression?
“Cheers, thanks” (I tend to do the double!)
Most likely to be seen reading?
I do plenty of business-related reading during the day, so when the eyes need a rest, I’ll plug into sports podcasts like “Second Captains” and “Off the Ball”
The Movie of Your Life – who’d play you?
One of the Minions! (as in, the animated movie “Despicable Me”)
Where you’ll never see Will?
At a music festival, ever. 
Happy Place?
At home with wife Jen, relaxing over a Thai curry.
Desert Island Disc(s)?
I enjoy musicals like “Wicked” or “The Lion King” – I like my music to come with a story.
That Thing You’d Save in a Fire?
My TV, so’s I don’t miss any sport – except for horse-racing, which I’m not bothered about!
Will IRL (In Real Life)
If Will’s not reading the sports pages or blogs, he’s listening to it on podcasts, or watching it on TV!  He’s even discovered Kabaddi - a high-intensity contact sport from India.  Will has also been known to head over to London’s West End to see a musical when he gets the opportunity.  And when wife Jen can drag him away from his sports, they both enjoy spending time with their families in Cork and Carlow.
