2024 Football Hall of Fame Inductee

June 8th, 2024

The 2024 Football Hall of Fame Inductee is John O’Gorman of Wexford.

Hailing from Taghmon-Camross in Wexford, John never appeared to be under pressure, he seemed to cruise through his games with a composure that left him one of the top full-backs in Leinster during his period in the number three jersey for his county.

Having made his league debut in 1983, his career continued through to 1997 with some 19 championship appearances, giving incredible service to his county. He also represented Leinster on the Railway Cup winning team of 1988.

An excellent fielder of the ball, his athleticism saw him control the area in front of goal, and he made if hard for any full-forward to get into the game. Virtually every game he went out in, there was a consistent and composed display, while he also possessed excellent skill levels when in possession of the ball.

He was always able to produce the best whenever required and proved an inspirational figure over a long period of time. He was the complete full-back. It was a pity that major success eluded him through such a distinguished career.
