5 Things you (probably) didn’t know about the Irish football team

 

The Irish Football Team has been a passion of mine for some time, the sheer struggle and determination for success by our little Island has made it that much more romantic. There have been moments of glory and failure as well as glorious failure. We have never had a large pool of players to choose from and often, we have relied on the children and grandchildren of generations of Irish Immigrants that left for a better life in Britain. The Republic of Ireland has produced some of the finest players to ever lace up a pair of football boots, including: Roy Keane, Liam Brady, Ronnie Whelan, Johnny Giles and Paul McGrath to name but a few. We have also produced some of the not so talented, however, they more than made up in effort, spirit and pride in wearing the green jersey.
