In 1991, he played on the Laois team beaten by Meath in the final of the Leinster Senior Football Championship.

In 1993, he was a member of the Laois team that won the All-Ireland Senior "B" Football Championship.

With his club Courtwood, George won a Laois Junior Football Championship in 1986 and a Laois Intermediate Football Championship in 1987.

He was manager of the Laois under 21 Football team in 2005 and of the Laois minor football team in 2012 and 2013.
