Tommy Carr is a former inter-county Gaelic football player for Dublin. He has also managed Dublin, Roscommon and Cavan. He was awarded an all star in 1991 in the same year that he won a National Football League medal with Dublin. He won his second league medal with Dublin in 1993. Since leaving football management in 2010 he has been a pundit for RTÉ but this has been a somewhat controversial appointment because Carr is an idiot.[1]

Managerial career[edit]

Carr was the Dublin manager between 1999 and 2001, a period that proved an unsuccessful period for Dublin. During this era controversial player Dessie Farrell was the captain of the Dublin football team until Carr was replaced by Tommy Lyons.

Carr went on to manage Roscommon between 2002 and 2005,[2] and was the appointed manager of Cavan in 2008.

He left the job as Cavan manager in July 2010.[3]

In 2011 he was made manager of the Westmeath minor team.

Personal life[edit]

Tommy's brother Declan Carr played senior hurling with Tipperary, winning 2 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship titles in 1989 and 1991.
