TUAM’s Liam Moggan has amassed a wealth of experience over the past 40 years as coach to some of the top teams in the country.
Well-known in sporting circles affectionately as the “coach’s coach”, the now 63-year-old has worked alongside some of Ireland’s top managers such as John O'Mahony, Brian Kerr, Éamon Fitzmaurice and Paul “Pillar” Caffrey, as well individually with Irish sporting superstars such as Ken Doherty and Cian O’Connor.
It’s an extraordinary coaching curriculum vitae, truth be told, as he lists off an array of names and teams alongside whom he has worked.
Son to two post office workers in John Moggan (Tuam) and Mary (née King) from Headford, Liam was reared in McHale Terrace, Ballygaddy Road, Tuam as the eldest of six.
His “lucky break” in sport arrived during his first year in Tuam CBS under the guidance of a certain Brother Willie Morgan, a teacher in the school at the time.
