In this week’s Shuul Colours profile, Kerry LGFA senior player Emma Dineen chats about her love of basketball, three-man-weaves and playing guitar.
A panellist when Kerry won the Munster senior championship in 2017, Emma made her debut against Waterford the following year. Her aspiration for 2021 is that The Kingdom can build on their strong showings over the last couple of seasons to secure promotion back to Division 1 of the National League.
In 2020, the 21-year-old student teacher won a Kerry junior championship with Dr. Crokes, but this year she hopes to line out with her home club Glenflesk, who have re-formed their senior team.
Can't Stop- Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
Basketball because I wanted to be a professional basketball player when I was young
Favourite- Drills like three man weave and any kicking drill.
Least favourite- The warm-up, it's very tiring.
I play the guitar.
I'd firstly give money to my parents and family and then I'd buy a Volkswagen camper van and travel the world and set up a home gym.
Stevie Nicks because I think she's really cool and I love her music.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
It is what it is.
I don't know where to begin, there's so many...
Galway because it has a nice vibe and it's the second most beautiful county in Ireland!
Thanks a mil to Emma for taking the time to answer all our questions and we wish her every success in the future - both in her football and music career!
