If you missed Joe Canning’s live Q&A, check out the answers below to see how he responded to some very interesting questions. You can also check out our last successful Q&A with Dublin hurler, Liam Rushe .
Q1 Do you ever get nervous before matches? via @Con950
Yes I do, of course, like anyone else. If you don’t get nervous something is wrong I think.
Q2 If TJ Reid can hit the ball at 112 MPH, how many Supermacs snack boxes could you get through in 20 mins? via @RobTimony
I haven’t tried it yet Rob but I’d be pretty disappointed if I didn’t eat at least 5 in 20 mins.
Q3 If you could join one team for a year who would it be and why? via @W_Valerie_W
I used to play some rugby when I was younger, so I would TRY play for Connacht. #outhalf
Q4 Joe, seeing as you ran a 10k last year, any plans for real run this year… the Dublin Marathon?!! @runningro
If you finish the @gaelforceevents in under 5hrs this weekend, will run it with you next year.
Q5 Do you think Conor McHugh will go far? @AmyBrett4
Well if you are talking about @conormchugh11 getting noticed in Magaluf, then I’d say he will go far #magalufweekender.
Q6 Hey Joe, do you play with a hurl that’s your ideal size, slightly long or slightly short from your ideal? @AnalysisGAA
I play with a touch smaller than a 36″. I’m fairly particular to be honest and very very fussy.
Q7 Who’s your favourite Fair City character? @ryanelainem
The cat is out of the bag now that I OCCASIONALLY watch it, but my fav @RTEFairCity character is Damo.
Q8 Strongest player you’ve ever had to mark? @FionaNiF14
The strongest player I ever had to mark would def have to be @dsully3 #unit
Q9 Snog, marry or avoid – Cyril Farrell, Eddie Brennan & Ger Loughnane? #GAAQnA via @AilbheNC
I’d Snog @NedzerB13 #fasteddie. I would avoid Cyril, as I see him down home a lot #parishtalk, and marry Ger. #soundman
Q10 Hi Joe where do you think the game was won and lost yesterday? via @HylandWillie
I don’t think @paudie8 and @gavinom6 had anything to do with it anyway bigbill #baalbecboys
Q11 Would you rather be attacked by 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck? @wilig14
Well in this weather Willie, one horse-sized duck might be handy. #dayfortheducks
Q12 Did you support the Galway camogie team last year? @deedocod
Yes of course I did Dee, it was a brilliant achievement from @GalwayCamogie96 and one we will hopefully regain again this year.
Q13 Joe, will there ever be a boy born that can swim faster than a shark? via @Horganator2000
What kind of a person thinks of this kind of a question? #toomuchtimeonyourhands
Q14 Which Canning is your fav sibling? @mscar2000
If I don’t say my sister Deirdre, I’ll be dead when I get home. #safeashouses
Q15 So Joe, easier hosting a @LibertyIRL breakfast @CrokePark or a 7am training session with the lads? @SportforBusines
Both the same if I’m honest Rob, although I get a better breakfast in @CrokePark #poachedeggs
Q16 How did it feel to be playing minor at inter-county level when you were just 15 years-old? @ethan_keane
I suppose I didn’t think too much about it at the time, I just wanted to play, didn’t think of the pressure.
Q17 How do you get that silky smooth finish to your hair? @PodgeCollins
Well Podgeeeen, it’s a little thing called gel and if you need some just ask #babyfacepodge
Q18 Why do you think Galway isn’t as successful as the likes of Kilkenny considering the squads are pretty even? @JackCol535
I think we have been more successful at the football if I’m not mistaken #gaillimhabú
Q19 Who do you think will win the u21 championship this year? @evelyn_barry
Q20 Who is your style icon? via @Danielle8K
Totally different but I like @pgal10 and @boringkearney. #coolguys #qualitystreet
