Pádraic Maher is the current captain of the Tipperary senior hurling team. He’s an All-Star athlete, picking up his fifth award at the 2017 PWC All-Stars back in November, as well as captain of his club team at Thurles Sarsfields. 

Off the pitch, Pádraic is a Garda, and in the limited downtime that he has between playing, training and working he likes to relax with friends.

We sat down with the 28-year-old wing-back to chat about his likes and dislikes, his personal style and his love of pizza!

Favourite/least favourite gym exercise?

“My favourite would definitely be the squat bar, and the one I dislike the most would be pull ups.”

Favourite film?

“This would have to be American Gangster.”

“I like the gear from River Island and Superdry.”

What do you like to wear off the pitch?

“I usually just wear casual jeans and a t-shirt off the pitch.”

Tea or coffee?

“Definitely coffee- all day long!”

What’s your ultimate food guilty pleasure?

“I’d have to say my food guilty pleasure is Apache pizza.

What do you do in your down time?

“I just like to hang out with friends and drink coffee. I like to read and watch Netflix too, when I get a chance.”

What are you watching on Netflix at the moment?

Narcos. I’m always behind everyone else!”
