George played for Leinster C.C. in Ireland though has subsequently been signed up by Somerset for whom he is a regular performer in the County Championship and he has been starring in his debut first-class season at Taunton with two six wicket hauls already. Notwithstanding his youth he has turned out regularly for Ireland in Twenty20, a form of the game where one might have thought more experience would be needed. However George has always performed well at this and, indeed, every other level he has played at. His outstanding bowling performances for Ireland 5-37 v Kenya at Mombasa Sports Club in 2012, and 5-71 v Namibia at Stormont in 2011. He reached 100 wickets for Ireland in only 60 Matches. This was quick at the best of times but with so many of his matches being ones in which he could only bowl 4 overs, that makes that performance even better.
