    The Rod deKhors book was called "Who Needs Cantona, We've Got Rod deKhors!". Indepedently printed with no ISBN, I'm sure, but I'll check it out. Didn't Shelbourne have a history book out recently? I seem to remember the title or sub-title referring to their history spanning three centuries.

    There's also Home Farm: The Story of a Dublin Football Club 1928-1998
    (see here http://www.readireland.ie/booknews/b...3/issue83.html)

    And for Bray, there's "Tales of the Wanderers" and "More Tales of the Wanderers" by journalist and Bray fan Colm Keane. Both were available in Carlisle Grounds last time I was there. (again, independently published and no ISBN I'd suspect)

    Eddie Mahon also has a book out on Derry City.

    Perhaps some of the Derry fans could shed some light on this publication

    Sean Ryan and Stephen Burke co-wrote it.

    I was looking for that Book, do you know where to buy it ?

    WHERE WERE YOU HIDING THIS THREAD !!!!
    In addition to books listed, heres a few more:-
    1. "A History of Derry City Football and Athletic Club" 1929-1972 by W.H.W. Platt.
    A season by season review throughout their Irish League membership.
    2. "A Record of League of Ireland Football" 1921/22-1984/85 by Niall Macsweeney
    Season by season record of league games, tables, and all Cups (Including Leinster & Munster Cups)

    Full rcord of games and tables, NB. FAI Cup scores only from Q/finals-FINAL
    4. "ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL and society in pre-partition Ireland" by Neal Garnham
    A very interesting read re development of the game in Ireland, but best feature is about the establishment of FAI.
    5. "Eddie Mahon's Derry City"- A pictorial history of club, with articles
    6. "75th Anniversary of Cup Campaigns" a review of Derry City Successful Cup Campaigns.
    7. "How the League was won" a review of Derry City's Irish League campaign of 1964/65.
    Below Eircom League Level (Non-League),

    A detailed histoy of the league.
    2."Between the Picket Fences- a history of the MSL since 1922" (1999) by Gerry Desmond & Dave Galvin
    Detailed history (as you would expect) of league.
    3. "Boots Rules & Fantasy Free- a history of Mayo Football" by Tom Kelly
    (1996)- A history of soccer in Mayo and Mayo League.
    In addition a guy from Dun Laoghaire (name escapes me) did 2 books on the detailed histories of the LFA and LSL, to tie in with their Centenaries (early 90's).

    The history of Waterford was in the 70's I think and the author was Tony Reid.

    Joe Dodds did 2 books if I recall correctly - "Soccer in the Borough" - a history of football in Dun Laoighaire and the 2nd one was a history of the Leinster Football Association.

    I should have spare copies of the LFA one and the Limerick one. Plunkett may still have copies ofr sale too of his books. He is a mine of info on Cork's football history.

    Especially for AFACE as requested, and cheers to SCHUMI (not a fellow taff ?)for posting A Graham's book's details. Note he's also done one on Northern Ireland 1881-2005, which contains IFA Cup details, though only from Q/final onwards, list "Republic" clubs that reached that stage pre 1921. Also notes Bohs,Shels & Tritonville IL league records (BTW did not Tritonville play at "Jones Road" which was old name for Croke Park, also Bohs before they settled at Daly. Park.- see where I'm going !).
    If interested IL book details are-
    isbn no.-1-86223-136-2
    Publishers Soccer Books ltd- 72 St. Peter's Ave. Grimsby, NE Lincs, uk, DN35 8HU, (TEL 0472696226).
    They arre 1st class soccer book dealers, though got my copy Easons,Derry. Sure both books could be ordered from good Easons store.
    History of Derry City by WHW Platt
    isbn-0 950 1953 2 4, published by author, printers- Coleraine Printing Co., published 1986 (got my copy antique market, Derry, where others available, also 2nd hand shops)
    BOOTS RULES & FANTASY FREE (MAYO Soccer history) by Tom Kelly
    Printed and published 1996 by Connaught Telegraph as TK journalist at paper, got my copy at source.
    A RECORD OF LEAGUE OF IRELAND FOOTBALL 1921/22-1984/85 by Niall Macsherry
    Was a publication by "The Association of Football Statisticians", A Grahams is really an update, though this one contained all additional cups as mentioned prev.(inc Leinster & Munster Cups).
    ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL and society in pre-partition Ireland by Neal Garnham
    isbn-1-903688-34-5
    published 2004 by Ulster Historical Foundation
    Know Easons have carried this previously, personally cannot reccomend this one high enough to those of you interested in history and development of soccer in Ireland, during this period, especially re split betwen FAI & IFA.
    50 YEARS OF CORK AUL-Plunkett Carter
    isbn-0-9531933-0-6
    Published by Cork AUL 1997
    BETWEN THE PICKET FENCES(History of MSL since 1922)
    No isbn, published by MSL 1999, got my copy direct from authors.
    The 3 books on Derry dont contain isbn or publishers details, though sure can be obtained from his shop (if still there !), behnd city walls opposite City Hall,2-3 doors down from Tower Museum. Maybe a Derry resident on forum could confirm.
    Also overlooked "INISHOWEN SENIOR SOCCER PLAYERS" an A4 size publication, of snapshots of players from area who've made grade at EL.IL & FL, levels. Author Michael McLaughlin, printed by Browne Printers Letterkenny.,Know stocked in Easons, Derry & Ltt/knny, where I got mine.
    Trust this of use.
