Eoghan O'gara

(Oldest Posts First)

The big man announced his retirement today.

A serious handful on his day, will never forget his goal against Tyrone in 2010. That victory was huge in the development of this Dublin team.

He also scored a serious point against Kerry in the 2016 Semi final to edge Dublin ahead in injury time.

Well done Eoghan!

Definitely loved seeing him come on in games, he had a real unpredictability about him. One of my favourite players to watch play and a medal haul that puts him up there with great players. It's amazing how many players were discovered from the Junior all-Ireland, worth relooking at the junior championship.

A real trail blazer for me, its easy to forget these years, that in 2010 we were considered a soft touch or would melt if you put any type of physical or mental pressure on us. Eoghan was one of the vanguard who dispelled that in 2010 and this current Dublin success and mindset is built of the shoulders and legacy of lads like Eoghan O Gara.

Always a favorite with fans, he was deeply loved and always will be by all Dubs.

So many memories and good times. What a contribution and medal haul.

My abiding memory weirdly is a 2012 league game away in PortLaoise, freezing - shot the lights out and was brilliant on the night, kicked everything from everywhere and everything went over, everyone was made up for him and made the night no other player could.

Ohhhh, Eogh-an O'Ga-ra!

MVG, eat your heart out!

EOG was such an enigma - as likely to do something brilliant as something crazy. He was (is still) a real cult hero and still had the eye for goal, right up to the end. Enjoy your retirement, big man. You owe the jersey nothing.

Great pair of hands, great work rate, great physicality but couldn't kick snow off a rope. Still, a great servant in a squad of players that will go down as the greatest that there has ever been. He walks away with 7 Celtic Crosses and the gratitude of all true blues. Well done Eoghan and thanks for the memories.
