Biography:
A member of the all-amateur Bohemians side that dominated the Leinster Cup in the 1890s, Morrogh made his only international appearance in an historic clash with Scotland. Prior to his Ireland debut at Solitude the Scots had won every one of the twelve meetings between the sides, scoring 61 goals to 14 by the Irish. Ireland matched the much-fancied Scots goal-for-goal and led at half-time only to be pegged level back by a goal in the 85th minute.
