Name: Kitty Fegan

1. When did you make your senior debut?
1993
2. Favourite position?
I’ve played in most positions apart from midfield. Enjoyed left half back
3. Favourite pitch?
Clonduff Park
4. Childhood hero?
Una O’Dwyer (tipp) and lately was ‘The King’ himself
5. What’s your most favourite game you’ve been involved in?
Any of the championship final wins – but it’s hard to beat the first one
6. And a game to forget?
Too many silver medals to pick from
7. Biggest achievement in camogie?
Wining player of the year in 1997
8. You can transfer in one player from across the country, who?
Niamh Kilkenny – Galway
9. And transfer one out?
I’d keep the crew that’s there….the craic is too good
10. Who is the best trainer in the squad?
As there are too many to mention, I’ll mention a past player – Ciara Havern (great girl)
11. Who is the worst trainer in the squad?
Rather than offend anyone…I’ll say myself
12. Favourite manager you’ve played under?
My Irish wouldn’t be great – a man called Padraig O’Mianain – a gentleman
13. Who is the managers pet?
Would depend which manager this year you’re talking about
14. Club volunteer of note?
I’ve made it plural to name our hard working camogie committee
15. Best thing about Clonduff?
It was once said that we are a team that works hard and are very good but we also enjoy the craic
16. How would you like to be remembered in the club?
Someone I suppose who always tried her best
17. If you could give one piece of advice to the youth, what would it be?
Enjoy playing and take on board any piece of advice you are given
18. Do you find being a senior camog and a teacher in the local primary school is of benefit to the underage stars coming through?
Absolutely, I take the P6’s and P7’s for camogie and you might get one or two to the club that never played before. As I coach the wee ones they sometimes get mixed up with the name – Kitty or Miss Fegan so I get Miss Kitty! (I suppose you could get called worse)

Thanks Kitty!
