Biography:
A prolific goalscorer with Bohemians through the 1900s and 1910s, Johnny McDonnell managed 31 goals in 1908/09 (15 in the Irish League) and 32 in 1911/12 (14 in the League).

Capped at international, amateur and inter-league level, McDonnell's goalscoring form unfortunately didn't transfer to the highest stage and although he played "with great dash" against Scotland, contrary to his Amateur record, he failed to score in the four matches he played in the International Championship.
