Jim Gavin is a former Irish Gaelic football player and manager, regarded as one of the best managers of the modern game, managing the senior Dublin County team from 2012 to 2019.

He became the country’s most successful manager ever, due to the number of major titles he secured.
 
Gavin was only 16 when he made his debut on the inter-county scene, playing for the Dublin minor team and later joining the Dublin senior team during the 1992-1992 season. He held a key role in the side over the next decade, winning one All-Ireland medal, three Leinster medals and one National Football League medal before retiring from inter-county football in 2002.
 
Following his playing career it was inevitable that Gavin would continue in the sport by moving to a management role, first of all guiding the Dublin under-21 team to All-Ireland success in 2003 and then securing two more All-Ireland titles in this grade in 2010 and 2012. He was appointed as manager of the Dublin senior team in October 2012 and has emphatically led Dublin through an outstanding level of dominance for many years, winning 17 major honours.
