Over the last thirty years, the English Premier League has grown to become the richest and most popular league in football – and the Irish have been at the heart of its success since the very beginning.

With insights from Seamus Coleman, John O’Shea, Niall Quinn, Shay Given, Jonathan Walters, Kevin Doyle, Andrew Omobamidele and many more, Away Days

uncovers the good, the bad & the ugly of a League that has been home to almost two-hundred Irish players.

This is the telling of Ireland’s impact on the Premier League as told through the stories of the players who have experienced the title wins and the relegation scraps, the big-money moves and the cancelling of contracts, the hero’s acclaim and the villain’s disdain over three whirlwind decades.
