    Him being English would have been no issue... but as an Ireland supporting Irish immigrant child he probably shouldn't have reffed it.

    I saw him sitting behind me at one of the Euro games in France, the Italian one I think, bedecked in an Irish jersey so yes, strange to see him refereeing an Irish game.

    Maybe the rules for friendlies are a bit more relaxed that for the competitive internationals.

    Back in the day I have the haziest memory of John Carpenter refereeing an Irish international but I may be wrong.

    I didn't get to listen to that on OTB. I was listening to that night's show though but missed the interview. I vaguely remember them saying he moved. But I assumed for years he was a 1st gen child. My mistake.

    Ringsend so... Rovers or Shels...?

    John's ok as he awarded that penalty to Shamrock Rovers in the 1978 FAI Cup Final - those in the red western part of the country still feel aggrieved about it although I am not sure this video enlightens us much

    Never a peno, not in a million years, he slipped on the mud.

    Looks like that was a televised game from 1878.

    I was wondering who really can do it on a Tuesday night in Stoke? So I checked out the numbers - http://irish-abroad.appspot.com/Blog...28113939187465

    I'd say you'd probably see the same record for Sunderland for most away games anywhere on any day of the week !

    Bye bye Ranieri.

    I can understand the decision, but I think he'd earned the right to fight relegation himself.

    Above all, he should have been allowed to quit rather than being sacked (though he may have been offered the choice).
