A UCC student from Fermoy, Tomás first played football at a Fermoy GAA Summer Camp at the age of 7. He believes that kick-passing is the most important skill in football, and the best advice he was ever given was that the easy ball is the right ball. His best football memory outside of playing was Cork's All-Ireland win in 2010, while as a player, the highlight has been winning the County Senior Football Championship with UCC in 2011. Colm Cooper is the greatest player he has ever seen, and if there was a transfer market in football, he would buy Michael Murphy. He considers the iPhone to be the best invention ever, and in ten years' time, hopes to be still playing football.
