Wicklow Abroad – Kevin Cullinan Ashford

Name: Kevin Cullinan

Town/Village: Ashford

Club: Ashford

Now Living: Coffs Harbour, NSW Australia

How long have you been living there?

5 months

Reason For Leaving Ireland:

Really wanted to travel and Oz was the first place on my list 👌

Thing you miss the most:

Pints and football… They don’t do pints over here it’s shocking💔 And there is no Gaelic team around here.

Person you miss the Most:

Has to be the fam. Little brother and sister and my oul lad.

Best thing about your new home:

Having the beach on outside my front door! Most people hate looking at my Snapchat stories😂😂

Worst thing about your new home:

There’s a few but we won’t talk about them, want people still to be jealous 😂

Funny story from your time overseas:

Getting locked out of my hostel room and I trying to climb in the window. There was a bunk bed in-front of the window. I had had a few drinks so my balance was a bit off and began to slip. So I did what I thought was smart and tried to jump in and ended up pulling the curtain off the wall and cut my legs up fairly badly that I now have a scar on my shin😂

Funny story from before you left home:

Almost bursting my stitches during the Junior C final. So I had a hernia repaired 3 days before the final so I couldn’t play. But I was jumping around so much on the sideline that I almost burst my stitches clean open! Didn’t stop me celebrating with the boys when they won tho 🔶◼️🔶◼️

Person you are glad to be far away from:

Ah I don’t wanna name names.

Is your club better/worse off without you:

I’d like to say worse but it looks like the lads are off to a brilliant start and hopefully can continue for the season 💪

What 3 people would you fly to you if you could and why:

I should be saying the fam, but if I got CC, Brick and Jiggles I know that all hell would break loose 😂

What person in Irelands love would bring you home:

I’d say the brother, he misses me driving him around

What person in Ireland’s love would make you want to stay away:

I’d say the lad who broke my nose after a night out in college in Tralee 😂
