Ireland’s Greatest XI at 11:11 on 11/11/11

As the clock strikes 11:11, here’s our selection for Ireland’s best-ever football team. What do you think?

WE LOVE A good celebration of our Irishness here at TheJournal HQ, and we couldn’t really let the palindromic 11:11 on 11/11/11 slip by without some sort of recognition.

So on the day that a football man takes up residence in Áras an Uachtaráin and the national side take the penultimate step on the road to next summer’s European Championships, we’ve put our heads together and decided on our version of Ireland’s best-ever team.

It’s Ireland’s Greatest XI at 11:11 on 11/11/11. What do you think of our choices?
