I admit it, Irish soccer doesn’t have the glamour of Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the fantastic facilities of Wembley or the Estádio da Luz or the passion of Dortmund and Barcelona. But what it lacks in those qualities it makes up in over the top tackles, filthy language, bumpy pitches, greasy hotdogs and top quality banter!
If you’re only going to catch one game while you’re here you should make it the FAI Cup Final. Derry City take on St Patricks Athletic in what should be a hotly contested final. The cup competition is the oldest football competition in Ireland dating back to 1922. Clubs from the top league compete against junior and intermediate teams to reach the final.
