Mike Gallagher Profile

 

National team Republic of Ireland
International debut

 

After only a handful of appearances for Alloa he signed for Hibernian in 1946 for a nominal fee. Although it took him some time to settle at Easter Road he would eventually win Championship medals in seasons 1950/51 and 1951/52, making 49 league appearances during his time in Edinburgh.

Transferred to Ayr United as part of the double deal with Jock Govan in 1954, he stayed three seasons with the Ayrshire club, ending his career at Weymouth.

On retirement, Gallagher emigrated to America to drive a taxi in New York. He died there in 1984.
