  1. Paul McGrath Visits O’Neills Dublin Headquarters

    Paul McGrath Visits O’Neills Dublin Headquarters

    Yesterday Irish soccer legend Paul Mc Grath visited the O’Neills Dublin Headquarters. Pauls mother lives in the area so he has always been curious about the O’Neills factory. We were delighted to welcome Paul to the factory yesterday and satisfy his curiosity!   

    Paul is one of Irelands greatest ever players. His football journey began not too far away from O’Neills at St Patrick's Athletic, however, he may be best remembered for playing his club football in England, with spells at Manchester United and Aston Villa. Paul won the FA Cup and the Football League Cup twice over a club career that spanned the best part of 17 years. However, it was Pauls performances for the boys in green that he is so widely revered in Ireland, in particular, his performance against Italy at Giants Stadium at the World Cup in 1994.
