1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor research / editing
I wouldn't bother with this book if accuracy is important to you. It contains a high incidence of inaccuracies. Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Irish Question seen through the History of Irish Soccer., 25 July 2012

This review is from: Green is the Colour: The Story of Irish Football (Paperback)
There is a lot of soccer politics in this book, sometimes but not always, mirroring the politics of Home Rule, separation of North and South and the establishment of the Irish Republic. But the politics is interestingly intertwined with the story of the development of Irish soccer, first as an All Ireland movement, then, inevitably as separate organisations after the border was established. There are many interesting stories of the "battles" between Dublin and Belfast teams, international matches and the World Cup exploits of both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. There are, too,stories of heroes off the pitch who fought for the success of Irish Soccer, as well as those on the pitch from 1880 up to the 2012 Euro Finals. A very interesting book told chronologically from the inception of the Irish Football Association, then subsequently the Football Association of Ireland, to the present day.
