Gabriel (aka 'Jean Valjean') is Mr Soccer on RTÉ Radio. He follows Wolves after a short period spent in Britain in the 1970s.

His commentaries on the Irish team's exploits in World Cup and European Championship campaigns alongside Eoin Hand are fondly remembered, and his orgasmic reaction to Ray Houghton’s goal against England in Stuttgart in 1988 is the stuff of legend. Gabriel is a fan of Riverdance, and loves to warble his way through ballads while playing a mean guitar.
