Ray Keogh - A Football Life

Printer-friendly version

Drumcondra Library, Tuesday 21 January at 6.30pm  

Ray Keogh was one of the star players for a Drumcondra team that captured the imagination of Irish football fans in the 1960s as they played out a storied rivalry with Shamrock Rovers. Apert from being a skilful attacking player for Drums, Ray was a trailblazer of another sort as he was likely the first black player to play in the League of Ireland. Sports historian Gerard Farrell presents this talk based on archival research and conversations with Ray and his family.  

Ray Keogh's career took him to Longford, Cork, Drogheda and north of the border to play for Ards and Portadown, before he achieved success as a coach.
