The defender, who joined the Seagulls in January 2018 from Bohemians after a successful trial, spoke about how happy he is at the club following last week’s 2-0 win over Southend United at Roots Hall – a game in which he found the target.

He said, “I’ve developed in a lot of ways since moving here; there is a difference between the physicality in Ireland and then the under-23 level here in England. 

“Technically it’s much higher though [in England], that’s no disrespect to the League of Ireland at all, but I think it probably took me a couple of months to grasp that and a get a feel for it. 

“I’m settled now and really enjoying it at the club; we’ve started the season well and have picked up some good results, and we want that to continue.”

O’Hora, who joined Albion at the age of 18, went on to speak about how the move came about, as well as his footballing background to date.  

“I started playing locally when I was younger and then moved to Ashbourne and played there for a few years, before moving onto Bohemians,” he revealed.

“I played 13 or 14 matches for them before making the move over here and it’s gone really well so far – everyone around the club is great.

“I was asked to come for a trial, saw the facilities and trained and loved it – I couldn’t say no, as it was something that I’d always wanted to do, so I’d just turned 18 and moved over here. 

“There was a bit of an Irish connection here anyway with the likes of Aaron [Connolly] and Jayson [Molumby] and that made it easier to settle in.”
