Liam Antaine spent days pondering on these questions ...
If you were stranded on a deserted Island and you could only have one item, what would it be?

What is your first memory of Siamsa as a child?
Seeing San Am Fadó and wanting to be the young boy.

Describe yourself in three words...
Energetic  -  Enthusiastic  -  EXHAUSTED!

What if anything is the best thing that has happened to you since joining Siamsa?
Meeting such wonderful people

What do you do for a pastime?
Swim and lift cows with one hand...

Sabotage?  There is a high possibility that another cast member may have gotten his/her hands on Liam Antaine's questionnaire after he submitted it for this blog. You can make up your own mind which questions were tampered with!
