From the Bishopstown club, Ken is a secondary school teacher at the North Monastery. He first played football with Kenley in Bishopstown Street Leagues, and he considers decision-making under pressure to be the most important skill in the game. His best sporting memory outside of playing is Cork's All-Ireland win in 1999, and as a player, the highlight has been scoring the winning goal against Colaiste Chriost Ri in the Corn uí Mhuirí. His toughest opponent to date has been Michael Meehan, and if there was a transfer market, he would buy Michael Murphy. The advice he would give young players is to try to improve every year, recognise your weaknesses and work on them. His favourite sport other than football is hurling, and he's also good at squash and FIFA 2014 in which he tells us he is yet to be beaten... As a child, he wanted to be the Arsenal goalkeeper, and in ten years' time he hopes to be healthy and still playing with his club.
