"King George" doing what he does best - now in Brunei
            Former Cork City FC star George O'Callaghan has moved to Brunei to play for Brunei Duli Pengiran Muda Mahkota Football Club (DPMM FC).  At 32 years-old;  there can be little doubt that the Whitechurch native's best days are behind him, but he has made a fresh start after troubled times.
            The much traveled Cork man has had many addiction related problems including alcoholism and gambling addictions.  He has played for a total of 10 professional club and had three spells at his local club;  Cork City FC.  He played probably his best football for his native city; winning the (Eircom) League Title and the PFAI Player of the Year crown back in 2005.  
FINEST HOUR:  2005 Eircom League Title
           However, since then he fell out with Cork City manager Damian Richardson (on the eve of a crunch Champions League tie) before crossing the Irish Sea back and forth several times.  Many managerial run-ins later and O'Callaghan has pitched up with the only professional club in Brunei.  DPMM FC are owned by the King of Brunei.
           Speaking of his move; O'Callaghan said:  "This is something I have always wanted to do.  It's very different here to Ireland; we train twice a day; at 7a.m. and 4p.m. - when the weather is not as cold.  I'd advise Cork City not retire my Number 10 shirt just yet because I might be back again some day!"
