Player Profile – Eamon Gavin

Eamon Gavin

We’ve let the ball drop, and let’s face it – that’s not the first time it has happened with Ranelagh Gaels, on our player profiles.

But with a new season we’re back with a new attitude and here is the first of a series of profiles from our lads and ladies teams to help you know our brightest and best better.

First up is Mister One In Three (that’s his shot-to-scores ratio, on a very good day…); the man with the patchiest hipster beard in Dublin 6.

The Gaels’ Best Dressed (sorry, Peter), the smiling assassin, the man who is all on his own bringing skinny red trousers back into fashion, the stickiest of sticky corner-backs – ladies and gentlemen, we give you… Éamon Gavin.

NAME : Éamon Gavin

AGE : 28

HOMETOWN : Drogheda, Co. Louth

RANELAGH GAELS DEBUT : 2012

POSITION: Corner Back/Utility player (like all Gaels!) 

FAVOURITE GAA PLAYER: Colm ‘The Jugg’ Judge

MOST LIKELY TO GET BLACK CARDED IN A GAME:  I strongly refute that accusation!

LAST CONCERT ATTENDED: Radical Face

FAVOURITE FILM: Snatch/Inglorious Bastards

RANELAGH GAELS ONE TO WATCH IN 2016: Too many promising young prospects to name just one!

THE QUESTION ON EVERYONES LIPS; WILL LOUTH  MAKE AN IMPACT IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR: After achieving promotion straight away from Division 4 I think anything is possible now! Knock the Dubs off their perch in Leinster en route to All-Ireland glory? Sounds plausible, right?!  

BEST/WORST GAA MEMORY: Louth winning the 2010 Leinster Senior Football Championship title/Having that title cruelly and illegally taken from us. Damn you Joe Sheridan!RG(4)

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME OUTSIDE OF GAA?
Big horse racing fan, enjoy a tipple now and again and have recently taken up some beginners Jiu Jitsu (Editor’s Note – watch out flashy corner-forwards).

LAST BOOK YOU’VE READ: Stoner – John Williams. Don’t let the title mislead you!

BEST GAEL UNDER A HIGH BALL: Liam O’Hagan

AIM FOR 2016:Get a good run in the championship and see where it takes us.
