Biography:

Capped six times while a Bohemians player, Denis "Dinny" Hannon's greatest international honour came when he was in the veteran stage. In 1924, by then plying his trade in the fledgling League of Ireland with Athlone Town, he helped the Irish Free State to the quarter-finals of the 1924 Olympic Games football tournament.

First,I wish to congratulate you on your wonderful website.
Dinny Hannon can actually be included in your dual international section.His 1924 Olympic honours have retrospectively been classified as full internationals.As an Athlonian I am very proud of Dinny.I had a good chat with him in 1961.I was home from London telling him about a Spurs match I had been to.
'I played in their ground in 1910' he told me.Actually I think it may have been a year or two earlier!
To conclude,why haven't we got a good website for the Republic of Ireland?
