Irish Independent

«<p>The statistics of Shay Given’s illustrious career as a goalkeeper for the Republic of Ireland football team speak for themselves – but the story behind his love for the beautiful game is just as compelling. From a young age, Given was playing soccer with his brothers in Donegal, dreaming of representing his country. His journey from that beginning to the international stage is a compelling and inspiring one, and Mac a’Bháird does it great justice, bringing us into the early days of Shay Given’s sporting career.</p>»
