Occupation: Business Analyst, Schools/College Attended: included CIT/UCC, Donal Óg first played football aged five in O'Donovan Rossa Park, Skibbereen and the biggest influence on his football career has been his family. The best advice he was ever given was work hard, keep focused and set goals and he believes that the ability to kick pass effectively is the most important skill in football as it speeds up the game. He would like to see the direct pick-up introduced, and his best memory outside of playing is watching his club senior team train and play games when he was a child.
