From the Bantry Blues club, Ruairi captained the Cork 2013 Junior Football team to Munster and All-Ireland glory, playing a starring role himself at mid-field. He first played football aged 4 with his club, and tells us that he broke everything in the house in his efforts! The best advice he was ever given was to pass the ball when you can, not when you have to. He considers being able to kick off both legs the most important skill in football, and would like to see the mark introduced. His best football memory outside of playing was Cork's All-Ireland win in 2010, while as a player, the highlight has been winning an U21 title with his club. His toughest opponent to date has been Dan MacEoin, and his favourite sport other than football is hurling. In ten years' time, he hopes to be still living the dream, playing with Bantry and hopefully Cork, have regained senior status with Bantry.
