Eoin Morgan: From Rush Cricket Club to lifting the World Cup with England

SportsJOE

“They’ll begrudge a young man from Rush following his dream?”

Every Cricket person celebrated on Sunday. Every Irish sporting person should’ve been proud too.

A county Dublin native reached the pinnacle of the game and joined Bobby Moore and Martin Johnson as the only men to lift a World Cup for England.

Morgan came through Rush Cricket Club where he started when he was four. He went on to become the youngest ever Ireland international and then he made the move to England because, to play Test cricket, that’s where he had to go.

But his journey started in Fingal. His journey to the very top.

Jack O’Toole visited Rush to report on a sporting icon.
