In this week’s ‘Five Minutes With’ we challenged Cork Camogie star Ashling Thompson to our quick fire round of questioning. On the pitch the All-Star winner is a force to be reckoned with, but off the pitch she enjoys some down time, even in the snow!

We chatted with Ashling at the Captains Run launched by Littlewoods Ireland and we learnt a lot about the woman behind the helmet, from her favourite cheat meal to what she enjoys doing most in the gym.

Last Chance U – it’s a real life series, it’s brilliant!

Man on Fire – definitely.

Tea or Coffee?

Oh.. depends on the time of day really. If I’m out I’d always have coffee but at home, tea tea tea!
