We recently gave fans the opportunity to get to know more about Dublin Hurler, Liam Rushe, in our Live Twitter Q&A. In an ‘ask me anything’ styled Q&A, Liam answered a combination of hurling and fun questions from fans including his club, team mates and even his brother.
If you missed it, check out the answers below to see how Liam performed in the social media hot seat.
Q1. What was your best moment wearing a Dublin jersey… via @ODonoghueCathal
LR: @ODonoghueCathal Defending the U21 Leinster trophy in Wexford Park 2011.
Q2. What hurler – playing or finished playing do you most admire? via @alosmithy
LR: @alosmithy Seanie Mcmahon or Ken McGrath, show the backs some love.
Q3. Is it true that WWE superstar Seamus was a neighbour of yours growing up? via @gaachris
LR: @gaachris unfortunately not, he’s a Finbarr’s Cabra man I think. Serious full forward potential though!
Q4. The fans all have their own biased view, but you’ve marked them both. So tell us…Canning or Shefflin? via @Paulshers
LR: @Paulshers @LibertyIRL Shefflin’s taller but without doubt Joe’s the better dresser!
Q5. If you had to play the All-Ireland final in a venue outside of Ireland where would you play it? via @ryancoady2
LR: @ryancoady2 The Superdome, New Orleans. Hopefully the lights stay on this time!
Q6. Did you remember to turn off the immersion when you left? via @desrushe
LR: @desrushe I did of course, did you get the washing in before it started lashing rain?
Q7. What would you class as the most important thing when coaching young kids at the start in hurling? via @hotshots85
(WINNER OF A SIGNED HURL & ALL-IRELAND QUARTER FINAL TICKETS)
LR: @hotshots85 Two hours club training a week isn’t enough to make the grade. Practicing at home is where you really develop.
Q.8 Do you think you have what it takes to be an Escort for the Rose of Tralee in the future? via @AnnaGCork
LR: @AnnaGCork I’m much too shy for that carry on, if only I could sing or dance.
Q9. Which of the Dublin players would you most likely trust your money to, as an adviser? via @SportforBusines
LR: @SportforBusines, @paulywayy he’s got my back in matches, and works in Davy’s so I expect good stock selections.
Q.10 biscuit or cake? via @taitinator
LR: @taitinator Rocky Road chocolate biscuit cake, not sure what category that fits in?
Q11. What was the highlight of 2013 for you? – Making your communion or winning the Leinster Championship via @More_DOR
LR: @More_DOR Lifting Bob O’Keefe, I didn’t get the Hummer for the communion so I wasn’t a happy camper.
Q12. If you got your hands on the Hurling rule book, which rule would you change first!? via @NoelMartyn
LR: @NoelMartyn Playing the hurl is allowed in camogie and should be allowed in hurling too, it’s a skill in itself.

LR: @AineePower Kerry for the craic and scenery or Clare to visit the relatives more often.
Q14. Hurl or hurley ? via @willydilleen
LR: @willydilleen Has to be hurl.
Q15. Blur or Oasis? via @amcd1984
LR: @amcd1984 Parklife is quality but I’m an oasis man at heart.
Q16. Is it true @ccrummey93 has the biggest hurl on the Dublin team? #size40 #askLiam #uplucan via @DieselFreeman
LR: @ccrummey93 @DieselFreeman Yea i think carrying that 39″ around during matches slows him down a little but he can’t change!

LR: @Palmerstown_gaa That Minor B championship win 2006, not a single memory left from that night though.

Q19. If you had to marry a mermaid, would you rather she had a fish top half of her body or bottom half? via @Bob_Abbey
LR: @Bob_Abbey Fish top half of course, I’m a leg man and I could get no guff from a fish head
