Chris Lawn is a former Tyrone Gaelic footballer. He was on the substitutes bench for the entirety of the 2003 final, and came on as a substitute in the 2005 final, for the injured Joe McMahon.[1] He has All-Ireland medals from 2003 and 2005. He was nominated for an all-star award in 1995, but was unlucky to lose out. He also until this day has been a long serving stalwart of the Moortown team, including a brief stint as manager.

After championship success in 2005, he, along with Peter Canavan, announced their retirement from inter-county football, after a very successful inter-county career. In December of that year, he auditioned for the 2007 Warner Bros picture 300 (film) and was initially cast for the position of King Leonidas who led the 300 strong spartans to fight the Persians, but later gave up the role to Gerard Butler due to a fall out with director Zack Snyder.

Until recently he managed the Cookstown Fr. Rock's club side and led them to promotion and an intermediate all-ireland club championship in 2009.[2]
