Kevin Nolan (born 19th of Sept 1988)[1] is a Gaelic footballer who formerly played for Kilmacud Crokes and the Dublin county team.

On the field of play, Nolan won a Sigerson Cup with DCU; an All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship with Kilmacud Crokes; a National Football League and All-Ireland Senior Football Championship with Dublin, winning the man of the match award for his performance in the final of the latter.[2]

Early life

Nolan was raised in the Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown suburb of Monkstown.[2] He attended Holly Park for his education.[2] He played association football with St Joseph's Boys in Sallynoggin.[2] English association football clubs Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers expressed an interest and invited him to go to England for trials.[2] He left that sport due to making progress with the Dublin minor football team.[2]

Playing career


Nolan won the 2008 Dublin Senior Football Championship with Kilmacud Crokes. He then won a Leinster Senior Club Football Championship, Dublin Division One AFL and the All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship.[3]

He played his last game with Crokes in 2018, when he moved to County Monaghan and began playing for Cremartin.[2]


Nolan won a Sigerson Cup with DCU.[2]


Nolan won the Dublin Minor Football Championship.

He made his championship debut for Dublin against Wexford in the final of the 2008 Leinster Senior Football Championship.[4]

He won five further Leinster Senior Football Championships with Dublin: in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Nolan was named the man of the match in the 2011 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final, as Dublin won their first title in sixteen years.[5] He was part of the half-back line with James McCarthy and Ger Brennan, and also scored during the final.[2]

However, injury and a medical condition limited his further development as a player.[1]

Jim Gavin called time on Nolan's inter-county career by omitting him from the Dublin panel before the start of the 2015 Championship.[1]

International rules

Nolan won the U-17 International Rules Series with Ireland.

Move away

Nolan later moved from his base in Lucan[1] to County Monaghan (close to Castleblayney)[2] and married Lorna[2] (to whom he became engaged in 2017)[1] in April 2019.[2] He previously suggested an openness to playing for the Monaghan county football team.[1] This never came to be.
