With the Irish public being urged to maintain social distancing and self-isolate if required, we are increasingly looking for movies to watch, books to read and rooms to clean.

RTÉ Sport is speaking to our sports stars and asking how they're using their time and tweaking their training routines to stay fit and healthy, and to keep their eye in, of course.

Today, it's the turn of Irish Matchplay and world youth champion Keane Barry.


Have you a set routine for practice at home?

I try to get about two hours in, so 30 minutes in the morning, one hour in the afternoon and 30 mins in the evening.

Is there one particular practice drill you do every day?

Before I start practicing properly I just throw at 25/Bull to get my range in.

What tips would you have for players who want to use this time to improve their game?

Don't just throw at the board, try and play different games and use all the board not just concentrate on one segment.

Netflix and chill or a nice evening jog?

Netflix and chill.

Name one book you want to read.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz.

On a scale on 1 to 10, how good are your DIY skills?

Probably 5 or 6 (the thinking is there but not so much the execution).

Have you a favourite pre-training meal to help you through a tough session?

Not really, just whatever is there.

Name one movie you want to watch.

Avengers: Endgame

What's the best way to stave off boredom?

For me it's just practice or go up to the yard and clean it up.
