Bio Kev O’Hanlon

 Kevin O’Hanlon played 62 league & cup games for VEC Football Club in an 8-year period between 2011 and 2019, and scored 1 goal against Harding IF FC in a Premier Division match in Terenure on 23rd March 2013.

In his 4 years in management (2015-2019) VEC won the Premier Division on three occasions; the Challenge Cup twice; as well as the Richard Knight Cup and the Premier Division Shield.

  • At Christmas 2014, Kev suffered a serious knee injury in an annual fixture against CYM Terenure, which unfortunately and effectively ended his playing days.
  • He returned as Assistant Manager to Dave Spring for the 2015-2016 season, and was inspirational in steering VEC to an extraordinary and historic Quadruple (Premier Division, Challenge Cup, Richard Knight Cup and Barton Shield).
  • Having being reluctant to move directly into the lead management role the previous season, Kev stepped seamlessly into that role the following season, steering VEC FC to the retention of the Premier Division title. The season after – again with Kev in charge – VEC finished as league runners-up, but then in his fourth season (2018-2019), he managed VEC to a remarkable double: Premier Division champions and Challenge Cup winners.
