George Harman's first-class exposure was fleeting - one match for Dublin University against an MCC side in 1895 in which he batted at No. 11 and did not bowl - but it was enough to ensure that when he died in Devon in 1975 at the age of 101 he was in the top ten on the list of the longest-lived first-class cricketers. His more significant sporting impact came on the rugby field where he turned out twice as a centre for Ireland in 1899 in wins over England and Wales helping them to the Triple Crown. At the time of his death he was also the oldest Home Nations rugby player.
