Graham Lawlor (born 3 May 1979) is an Irish football coach and former player and is under-19 team manager at Bohemians.

He began his senior career at Bohemians making his debut on 3 January 1997 after playing at youth level for Home Farm and was a bright young prospect throughout his time at the club, even finishing their top scorer in the 1997/98 season with 13 goals from 28 league games (4 as substitute).[1]

After being sent off against St Patricks Athletic 4 games into the 1999/2000 season, Graham moved to fierce rivals Shamrock Rovers making his Rovers debut on 17 October 1999 [2] scoring his first goal in his next game.[3] However, despite 6 goals in 22 total appearances his time at Rovers was ruined by an Achilles tendon injury.

Having missed two seasons through persistent injury problems he signed for Bray Wanderers in October 2002.[4]

He made 64 league appearances for Bohs, scoring 21 goals.

Lawlor was first team coach with Athlone Town for the 2013 season where he spent one season and won the First Division .

Lawlor was appointed first team coach of Longford Town on 27 November 2013 and won the First Division.[5]

After two seasons with the midland's club, Lawlor returned to Bohemians in December 2015 to become their under-19 manager.
