John Lynch is a former Tyrone Gaelic footballer, and All Star winner, who played in Tyrone's first ever All-Ireland Final in 1986.

He also represented Ireland in an early rendition of the International Rules Series. He blames his subsequent sending off for instigating an unfair reputation as being a dirty player. [cite web|url=http://www.hoganstand.com/Tyrone/ArticleForm.aspx?ID=27947|title=Lynch, John|accessdate=2007-02-13]

He played club football for his local town, Castlederg, but was very close to pursuing a career in athletics, until his girlfriend convinced him to pursue Gaelic football. [cite web|url=http://www.hoganstand.com/Tyrone/ArticleForm.aspx?ID=27947|title=Lynch, John|accessdate=2007-02-13]
