Ireland's First Real World Cup: the story of the 1929 Ireland Olympic Football Team by David Needham This a must read for any Republic of Ireland football fan. As the Republic prepare to play in their first major football tournament in a decade, read about the first time an Ireland team competed in a major football competition. Not Euro 88 as you might expect but rather the 1924 Olympic Football Tournament in Paris. Although the tournament is recognised by FIFA as a "football world championship", today the story of the tournament and Ireland's participation in it have largely been forgotten by Irish football and Olympic historians alike. However the Boys in Blue did remarkably well and they paved the way for future generations of Irish footballers and Olympians. Book. Paperback. Non-fiction, football, Irish sporting and olympic history. 295 pages with B&W photo illustrations, fixture listings, match stats. Published in Ireland, in 2012, by The Manuscript Publisher. ISBN 978-0957115729.
