    Alan McLoughlin gone but not forgotten. RIP

    In any tribute to Alan McLoughlin, I guess there’s only one place you can start. I’d already had a couple of false starts when it came to following Ireland away. My application for a ticket to the Euro 92 qualifier against England at Wembley had been turned down with my home ticket block booking account […] More

    Kevin Sheedy

    Irish Career Kevin Sheedy scored 9 goals in 49 appearances. Damien Duff, another left winger has 8 goals in 100 appearances. Kevin Kilbane, you guessed it a left footer has 8 in 110 appearances. Ireland doesn’t produce players that score many goals (Robbie Keane is the exception) so Sheets record is really impressive, and he had […] More

    Ireland hit rock bottom

    We have just lost our opening games in the World Cup Qualifiers and with that, any slim hopes of qualification has evaporated. That said, it shouldn’t all be doom and gloom, even though we did end up going down to Serbia 3-2 and 1-0 to Luxembourg. For starters, it was away from home. Secondly, Serbia […] More

    Anyone who can put their hand on heart and say they can stand over criticism of Stephen Kenny is, quite frankly, talking shite

    Let’s put our foot on the ball here. It’s October 7, 2006, and Steve Staunton’s head is bowed, almost like he is trying to avoid the flashing cameras and high-pitched vitriol. He is trying to avoid the flashing cameras and high-pitched vitriol. He wishes the Nicosia turf would suck him up and bury him where […] More

    Kenny’s squad choices

    Not seeing the Republic of Ireland team in the world cup in 2018 hurt, and even though it’s fair for all teams to take part, it is a bitter pill to swallow when you see teams such as Panama, Iran and Costa Rica, competing when Ireland are on a par or better than them. And […] More

    Losing a father, a friend, an idol in a pandemic: Shane Duffy needs our support now more than ever

    With just two words, you could sense a child-like giddiness from Brian Duffy. Whoop Whoop, he would write. And you could just imagine the scene. Surrounded by family and friends and wearing a beaming smile, proudness emanating from every bone in his body, he takes his seat. Even from watching social media feeds from the comfort of a sinking […] More

    Josh Cullen’s rise to the top in Belgium

    The name Josh Cullen isn’t that familiar to the casual Ireland fans, but if he can get the chance to show his RSC Anderlecht form in an Ireland shirt, he could go onto to be a household name. Not many Irish players have made their name in Belgium football, so, when Cullen made his move […] More
