It’s Monday, so it’s that time again. Grab a coffee, and a big chunk of that oval dark mass masquerading as chocolate that you forgot to finish yesterday, kick back and enjoy five minutes in the company of Kilkenny powerhouse (yup we went there), Katie Power.
Coffee order? Americano. But at the weekends I like to go wild and have a cappuccino or a flat white!
Occupation? I’m a PA for Michael Lyng Motors and a PT for TJ Reid Fitness & Mcfuture Fitness
WH: And a PT in front of goals… A Permanent Threat that is 😜
Where did you first puck a ball? Out on the front lawn with a Star hurl. That’s a Star Hurl… From Kilkenny… for all your hurling needs
WH: Slow down with the plugs Katie that’s the next question…
So, who makes your hurls? That would be Star Hurls. From Kilkenny… The Dowling’s. Class
Any nicknames? Kate, Kash, Power. Real original in fairness!
Of all the teams you’ve played for, what’s your favourite jersey? Kilkenny obviously 👌
If you could have the jersey of one opponent you respect the most? Cork’s Gemma O’Connor…
Who is the biggest whinger at county training? Aoife Doyle, no question!
And most likely to hang you out to dry on social media on the sesh? Denise Gaule!
WH: Ah yes, Storm Denise. Destructive by nature (private joke for our long time followers 😅)
Of everything you’ve won, what’s your most cherished medal? All-Ireland club with Pilltown and senior All-Ireland with Kilkenny…
Medals in a drawer or up on the wall? In a drawer
Now, what seems to be the really divisive question… Long socks or midi socks? Definitely midi 👌
Carpool Karaoke, what song and which teammates would you choose to sing along with? Definitely not Ann Dalton, she’s a pure crow and her song choices would be chronic!
WH: This is a massive missed opportunity. We are going to pretend you said Phil Taylor’s walk on song 🎶
Favourite pre match meal? Rice pudding 🤤
And for a cheat meal? Love Thai food from Aroi 🥡
Favourite ground to hurl in? Nowlan Park 💯
What’s the one thing you have to do to play county that you will give up immediately on retirement? Preseason! 🤢
You may not know this about me but… I’m a very odd individual!
Finally Katie, keep it as it is or play under hurling rules? Hurling rules please 💪
