Colin O'Riordan Biography

Friday, 19 July 2019
Colin O'Riordan signs a new two-year deal to remain at Sydney until the end of 2021.

O'Riordan, who took the gamble to travel from County Tipperary to Australia in 2016, has played the past nine games for Sydney and looks finally ready to be a permanent part of the Swans defence.

"You always have to be a bit on edge and that's what I've tried to do, I don't think you can ever really feel settled," he said.

"I'm pretty happy with where I'm at, but there's always room for improvement.

"At times I thought I might not pick up the game, but you have to trust the coaches that keep telling you that you can make it."

Thursday, 23 November 2017
Colin O'Riordan signs a new two-year deal to remain at Sydney until the end of 2019.

"Such an honour to have signed on for two more years with the Sydney Swans. Love this club," O'Riordan said in an Instagram post.

Sunday, 11 October 2015
The Sydney Swans win a three-way bidding war with St Kilda and Essendon to secure the services of Irish teen sensation Colin O'Riordan.

While he's ecstatic to receive an AFL contract, O'Riordan says it might take time to get used to wearing the Swans colours.

"I grew at home hating the red and white because it's (rival county) Cork," he joked.

"The second I stepped foot in Sydney I absolutely loved the place, the people there and the atmosphere, it was just something else."

Swans recruiting manager Kinnear Beatson said the club had no hesitation in offering the Irishman a two-year international rookie contract.

"We think he'll play as a small-medium defender running off half-back," Beatson said.

"The thing that really impressed us is how well he kicks the footy for a guy that's grown up with a round ball, but also his hands were very good over his head and at ground level, and he's just so competitive."
