Book Description

For the first time in history, this star-studded book profiles 20 of the greatest soccer legends drawn from both sides of the Irish border. Written as an accompaniment to the RTE Radio 1 series Ireland's Soccer Top 20, the book traces the sport's evolution in Ireland from the late 1930s to the present day. Among those featured are some of football's greatest names - Johnny Giles, Roy Keane, George Best, Paul McGrath, Pat Jennings, Liam Brady, Derek Dougan, David O'Leary, Ronnie Whelan, Don Givens and Frank Stapleton. Memories of the Republic of Ireland's historic matches in the 1930s, '40s and '50s are featured in chapters on Manchester United's Jackie Carey and Aston Villa's Con Martin. Former Manchester United players Noel Cantwell and Tony Dunne along with Preston North End's Alan Kelly reminisce about the 1960s. Norman Whiteside, Packie Bonner, Niall Quinn and Damien Duff recall more recent times. Ireland's Soccer Top 20 encompasses some of football's greatest moments, among them FA Cup and Championship successes, European triumphs and wonderful international campaigns including Euro '88 and six World Cups. This 'Hall of Fame' of Irish soccer is required reading for all football fans.
