Biography

Goalscoring midfielder who spent three successful seasons at Warden Street under Kenny Shiels before turning his hand to management.

In January 2000 - signed for Moyola Park (aged ?)

Kearney was virtually unknown to many Irish League followers when Kenny Shiels recruited Oran and his older brother Gareth in the summer of 2002. The impact was instant as Shiels' entertainers lit
Oran bagged 16 goals from midfield as his trademark late bursts into the penalty area were vital in the Sky Blues' promotion back to the Premier Division.

The sacking of Kenny Shiels marked the end of a successful stay at the Showgrounds, as long term admirer David Jeffrey coaxed Kearney to Linfield in June 2005.
