Questions Wanted for Monaghan Midfielder Dick Clerkin

Post  bald eagle on Wed May 02, 2012 3:40 pm

I am delighted to invite questions from all Global GAA members that they would like to ask Monaghan Midfielder Dick Clerkin, i have added a small profile on Dick for you to read -
__________________________________________________________________________

Dick Clerkin is a footballer that is renowned as one of the finest midfield footballers in Ireland, the Sons of St. Patrick, Currin GFC clubman is a figure that has stepped out of the shadow of having a Monaghan legend as a father. He is a hard working, no nonsense, former captain of his county and played an important role in the Monaghan side that reached the 2007 Ulster Championship Final and then progressed to the All Ireland Quarter-final, losing to eventual All Ireland Champions Kerry by a single point. 2007 ended on a high note for Clerkin as he collected an Inter-Provincial winners medal with Ulster. In 2010 Monaghan reached the Ulster final only to be again defeated by Tyrone however Dick was rewarded for a great season when he was selected in the Irish News Ulster All Star team in Midfield, along with a nomination for a GPA All Star award.


A Process Engineer by day, Dick is a passionate clubman and played a pivotal role in the helping his beloved Currin GFC rise from their traditional Junior ranks to Senior football for the 2012 season, their first time in their 125 year history, and they have more than held their own to date

__________________________________________________________________________

This is an opportunity for us to get closer to GAA personalities and clubs by asking prescreened questions, any questions you have should be PM'd to me, any questions that appear on this thread will be ignored. We will email the questions off to the relevant party after consideration, and publish the interview on this site for you to view and comment on as soon as we receive it from Dick.

No other GAA forum has had the opportunity to undertake anything like this so please think of some questions we can ask. This is an amazing chance to grow the forum, its member base and our reputation in the GAA world.

All questions will be credited to the poster/s that asked them.

The closing date and time for question submissions is Wednesday 9th May at 14-00

I am delighted that Dick has agreed to this, get thinking about the type of question that you would like to ask him and make sure you sent them to me before the deadline, ask as many questions as you like and on whatever topic you like. I will look through them and select the most relevant for Dick to answer, all questions are given the same amount of consideration before they are collated and sent off.

You MUST be an active poster on the site to have your questions considered, that is the only condition i ask for!

Bald Eagle on fire here! Another top name, and our first current intercounty star. An abrasive but very under-rated footballer. Great stuff - looking forward to it!

Another great coup from BE - fair play. Dick Clerkin - love him or hate him or love to hate him - but you cannot but respect him. Will have to think of a few good ones for the man and fair play to him for participating. Am veering towards liking him already! Smile

Less than 24 hours folks, a lot of posters not taking up the opportunity.

Surely all our active posters can think of 1 (GAA/sport related) question they'd like to ask?

I am no longer taking questions on this now. I am slightly underwhelmed by the final response.
