Best of Luck and Congratulations to Colin O’ Riordan

We extend our best wishes to former Tipperary and JK Brackens player Colin O’ Riordan who makes his senior Sydney Swans debut this weekend


Colin had a glittering underage career with Tipperary winning two Munster minor football medals (2011, 2012), an All-Ireland minor medal in 2011 as well as captaining the county under-21 side to Munster glory in 2015. That same year he won a Allianz Division Four medal with the senior set up. The talented sports star was also well able to hurl and represented the Premier at underage.

The Killea man appeared to have a glittering Gaelic football career ahead of him before switching to the oval ball in Australia in October 2015.

Colin wont be alone this weekend as Sydney Swans have kindly flown out his parents Michael and Imelda to watch him make his debut against North Melbourne in the Etihad Stadium.

You can read an interview with Colin on the Sydney Swans websiteย here.

Colin will also be interviewed by Ronan Quirke this Monday evening on Extra Time on Tipp FM and we look forward to hearing him discuss how his first senior match for the Swans went.
