A Team of Fennos: A reflection on Eoin Fennessy (1983 to 2016) by NCI Lecturer, Desmond Gibney

Posted by Desmond Gibney on 03 October 2016

I wouldn’t normally quote from a chant popularised by fans of Liverpool Football Club, being of a different allegiance myself. But there is a chant titled “We all dream of a team of Carraghers”, in tribute to Jamie Carragher. And in an Irish football context there is the chant of “A Team of Gary Breens”.
