Player Profile – Jeremy McCarthy

This week the harsh gaze of the Ranelagh Gaels Player Profile spotlight falls on Jer McCarthyproud Cork man, book lover, proud Cork man, Arsenal fan, proud Cork man, utility forward, proud Cork man, jack-jump-hater and proud Cork man.

Jer shares a house and  fractious on-field relationship with midfielder Conor ‘Fer f*@k sake Jer’ Harnett, but he doesn’t seem to let that bother him. What does bother him though, is having to train on the beach. Or even having to train at all.

He is currently considering a bank loan from his employers to fund the purchase of a new pair of football gloves.

Name: Jer McCarthy

Age: 26

Hometown/club: Douglas, Cork

Occupation: Banker

Facebook status: Arsenal upset me

Position (keep it clean!): Corner back for Douglas, so anywhere in the half/full forward line for the Gaels.

Joined the Gaels: January 2007

Best words of wisdom from Liam O’Hagan: “Jaysus lads, I’d kick that over with me plum.”

Favourite Gaels memory: The final league game of 2009 in Tallaght where we beat Thomas Davis to get promoted to Division 8, second promotion in 2 years.

First three songs on your ipod/MP3 on shuffle: Party On, Damien Dempsey; Kings of Leon, Use Somebody; Coldplay, Green Eyes

Last decent film you saw: The Fighter

Black porter or red wine: Black Porter

X-Factor or Frontline: It’s a tough call, both fairly useless, but I’ll say Frontline.

Grainne Seoige or Sharon Ni Bheolain: Will have to agree with the others and say Sharon – a great girl!

Soccer or rugby: Soccer

Pairc Ui Chaoimh or Thomond Park: It has to be Pairc Ui Chaoimh, have witnessed many a Cork victory there over the years. More of an armchair rugby fan.

All-time favourite Coronation Street Character: Dev Alahan

Best books you’ve read: The Millennium Trilogy, and Donal Og Cusack’s Come what May. Does this question have something to do with the book club rumour? (Note from Editor – yes, Jer, yes it does)

One reason Cork people think they’re better than everyone else: I don’t believe that Cork people think they are better than others. The fact that people outside of the ‘Real Capital’ may feel slightly inferior when in the company of Cork people may be an issue for themselves to address!

Greatest Cork man ever: Ranelagh Gaels very own Tadhg J Kelly….thats right!….I was shocked when I found out he was from Cork too!!

Least favourite thing about Junior football: Inconsistent refereeing (and also training on the beach).

The Gaels player that should take over as Taoiseach and why: Would have to be Denis Doolin. He is destined for a seat in the Dail in the next election. It’s also about time we gave another Offaly man a go at being Taoiseach!

You’ve just won the €7,300 top prize in the Ranelagh Gaels Club Lotto – you spend the money on: I would go to the rugby world cup in New Zealand later this year and if they was a few euro left over, probably buy a new pair of gloves!

Rule change that would make football better: Rolling substitutions. It would need more officials at the games but it would get a lot more of the players on the panels involved.

In ten years time the Gaels will be: Hopefully playing a few divisions higher, have their own pitch and facilities in Ranelagh with Liam still directing from the sideline.

Playing Junior C Football for Ranelagh Gaels is great because: There is great friendship and banter between all the lads on and off the pitch. Its an excellent way to meet new people and the club is of huge credit to both Liam and the committee.

  6. Tadhg Kelly born on 26 March 1979, just did a quick check on the books, took ages to find you as it was so long ago and we’re so backward down here.

    But yes you were in fact born here and that makes you from Cork. Also can you please send us your current residence address as no one paid for the operation of your birth and more importantly we can send you the “How to become a Rebel in your sleep” Manual.
