Liam is from a mixed background, his father was born in St. Lucia, whilst his mother was born in Dublin.|
In 1998, George represented Ireland in the UEFA Under-18 Youth Championships, alongside Robbie Keane, Richard Dunne and Stephen McPhail, reaching the final against Germany. The game went to penalties and, with the score at 3-3, George slotted home the winner to make it 4-3.
