Dunphy: A Football Life

Dunphy: A Football Life


A brilliant look at the life of Eamon Dunphy, written by former footballer Jared Browne.

Eamon Dunphy, irrepressible and irreverent, divides opinion like no other. Dunphy: A Football Life charts the intriguing and frequently humorous course of Dunphy’s life in football, beginning with his unspectacular playing days with a succession of English lower-league clubs.

The book revisits his controversial stances on all things football and throws in some of the politics too. It is an in-depth discussion of many of the major talking points in Irish football, such as: The Saipan controversy, The Jack Charlton years, Giovanni Trapattoni, Roy Keane, and Mick McCarthy.

With comprehensive breadth and drawing extensively upon interviews with Dunphy, his own football books, print journalism, radio and television appearances, and the opinions of numerous other football writers, Jared Browne has created an engrossing portrait of a fascinating man.

In terms of understanding some of the biggest sporting issues to grip the country in the last 30 years and attempting to understand a complex character such as Dunphy, I cannot recommend this book enough.” – Kevin Massey,
