Part of The Open Door series, an adult literacy series of novellas by well-known Irish authors.
World Cup 2002 was a dramatic tournament for the Republic of Ireland football team. Just a week before their first game, Ireland’s captain, Roy Keane, was sent home. This was a major blow to the Irish Team. However, they bounced back to score more goals than any other Irish team in a World Cup finals match.
Through his diary, Niall Quinn, one of Ireland’s best-loved footballers, brings us the excitement of the World Cup from the inside. We are with the team through the highs and the lows. And we see just how important the supporters were during this explosive time in Irish football.
