Player Profile – Conor Harnett

Next on the Player Profile hit-list is someone you might over hear in Smyths professing, “I’m a bit of a big deal around here.”

Self-proclaimed Murphy Cup hero Conor Harnett is under the microscope as he discusses his ‘attacking midfielder’ role (or as its known in Junior C football, midfielder), the Gaels who will soon be exiting bachelorhood and the fact that he’s a walking sick note, seeing more days off than Carlos Tevez.

Let the cute Kerry-hoorism begin…..

NAME: Conor Harnett

AGE: 27

HOME TOWN/CLUB: Cordal, Co. Kerry

OCCUPATION: Corporate Commercial Analyst, Vodafone

FACEBOOK STATUS: Still can’t feel my upper lip ….very annoying. Stupid injury!!

POSITION (KEEP IT CLEAN): Attacking Midfielder

JOINED THE GAELS: 2008

DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: Black eye, gum shield and strapped ankle

CLAIM TO FAME: I lived with the mighty Jer McCarthy for a few years

BEST WORDS OF WISDOM FROM LIAM O’HAGAN: We are not doing enough running!

FAVOURITE GAELS MEMORY: Murphy Cup final especially after missing half the season because of injury (nothing new there!)

FIRST THREE SONGS ON YOUR iPOD/MP3 ON Shuffle: Bobcaygeon, Tragically Hip – Down by the river, Bruce Springsteen, Who’s that chick, David Guetta

Yeah we’d never heard of Tragically Hip either!

LAST DECENT FILM YOU SAW: Tough call its between Project X and Safehouse

BLACK PORTER OR RED WINE: Black Porter

X-FACTOR OR FRONTLINE : X-Factor

GRAINNE SEOIGE OR SHARON Ni BHEOLAIN: Do I have to pick one? I guess Grainne does like the Kerry lads 😉

KERRY’S GREATEST MOMENT: 2012 when we will beat Tyrone in the All Ireland Final

SOCCER OR RUGBY: Soccer

IRELANDS GREATEST SPORTSMAN/WOMAN: Jim Stynes

WHICH GAEL IS THE WORST IN TRAINING? The Doc!

LEAST FAVOURITE THING ABOUT JUNIOR FOOTBALL: Injuries and 11am throw ins on Sunday mornings.

ALOT OF GAELS RECENTLY HAVE BEEN DROPPING THE KNEE AND STICKING THE RING ON THE FINGER, WHO DO YOU THINK IS NEXT ON THE CHOPPING BOARD: That’s easy Jeremy McCarthy followed by Denis Doolan.

THE COUNTRY IS DOOMED, WHICH GAEL COULD TAKE US OUT OF OUR ECONOMIC CRISIS: Tadgh Kelly – if you only you could see how efficient he is at work everyday!! some man for one man.

YOU’VE JUST WON THE €1,900 TOP PRIZE IN THE RANELAGH GAELS CLUB LOTTO – YOU WOULD SPEND THE MONEY ON: A week long cruise with no mobile phone. Paradise.

RULE CHANGE THAT WOULD MAKE FOOTBALL BETTER: That some of the tackling you see in hurling was allowed in football….too many soft frees are awarded in football. You’re always injured for Gods-sake!

IN TEN YEARS TIME THE GAELS WILL BE: Well one thing is for sure the ladies team will be All Ireland Junior Champions – that’s if Jimmy is still in charge.

PLAYING JUNIOR C FOOTBALL FOR RANELAGH GAELS IS GREAT BECAUSE: Your playing with some of the soundest lads you will ever meet and there is always someone around for a pint! Love it!! Since when have you been around for a pint?

  5. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
