Friday night gladrags or curry night?
V (right): Home sweet home.
A: It would be a night out for me!

A super Saturday?
V: I’d get up early, go to my daughter’s piano/singing lesson and then enjoy a BBQ with friends.
A: I prefer to keep things spontaneous. I’d start with a football match and take it from there!

Saturday night… at the stove, or round the table?
V: Around the table, playing cards and drinking wine with friends and family.
A: I’m usually a part of this. We begin playing late in the evening and don’t go to bed until the next morning.

TV, radio show, music or newspaper that means the weekend?
V: None of the above – spending time with my wife and kids does it for me. Or hiking or cycling!
A: I like to be outdoors, too. Football, skiing or swimming.

We can whisk you away for two dream days. Where would you go?
V: Salmon fishing in Siberia. I’ll get there someday!
A: Two days at the pyramids in Egypt.

Memorable mini-break?
V: Going home to Slovakia with my wife, who’s Irish. We cycled around the Danube forests, looking for all the secret places I used to go.
A: A small Serbian village with my three best girl friends. I can have a great time anywhere if I’m surrounded by nice people.

Sunday best?
V: I’ll make pancakes most Sundays, then do a few hours practice, before it’s family time again. A trip to the Wicklow mountains would be on the list.
A: Curled up in bed with my girlfriend and a great movie.
