ANOTHER Kerry GAA great was inducted into the GAA Museum Hall of Fame in Croke Park yesterday.

Ogie Moran, winner of eight senior All-Ireland medals with Kerry, was joined by five other players receiving the honour for the period covering 1985 to 1989.

The addition of these six new Gaelic games stars to the Hall of Fames brings the total number of inductees to 54 across hurling and football.

Ogie was joined by hurling greats Nicky English (Tipperary), Conor Hayes (Galway) and Terence ‘Sambo’ McNaughton (Antrim) and footballers Colm O’Rourke (Meath) and Larry Tompkins (Cork).

Speaking at the event, Ogie said; “I’m very honoured and privileged to be considered for this. I certainly wasn’t expecting it. But I’m deeply humbled, deeply honoured and absolutely delighted.” (to read more of Ogie’s interview with GAA.ie click here)

Ogie is one of the five players who have won eight All Ireland winners’ medals, the most in Gaelic football history. All are members of the great Kerry side of the 1970s and 1980s.

But only Ogie played every single minute of those eight All Ireland final triumphs in 1975, 1978 – 1981 and 1984 – 1986.

Ógie also stands apart as the only player to win these eight All-Ireland medals playing in the same position. Over the course of 12-year senior inter-county career, Ogie’ Moran also won 11 Munster senior championship medals, 3 National Leagues and was an All Star in 1981.
