Martin O’Neill – “On Days Like These”
One of our legendary players from the past, Martin O’Neill, returns to Belfast on Wednesday 16th November to offically launch his new book “On Days Like these”.
Martin made his breakthrough playing for Distillery before joining Brian Clough’s legendary Nottingham Forest team, becoming one of the few players who made the epic journey from the Second Division to the glory years: winning the First Division championship, two League Cups and back-to-back European Cups.
Martin represented Northern Ireland over sixty times, playing alongside George Best and captaining the side at the 1982 World Cup, where they reached the quarter-finals. As a manager, O’Neill’s celebrated leadership of Celtic saw them win seven trophies, including three Scottish Premier League titles; and in England he successfully led Leicester City to two League Cups and Aston Villa to an unprecedented three consecutive top six Premier League finishes.
He then oversaw the Republic of Ireland reaching the Euros in 2016, when they made it to the second round for the first time in their history. With a career spanning over fifty years, Martin tells of his exhilarating highs and painful lows; from the joys of winning trophies, promotion and fighting for World Cups to being harangued by fans, boardroom drama, relegation scraps and being fired.
Written with his trademark honesty and humour, On Days Like These is one of the most insightful and captivating autobiographies and a must-read for any fans of the beautiful game.
The event which is being organised by Belfast Bookstore “No Alibis” is being held at the Europa Hotel with tickets priced at £25.00 for which you will alo receive a signed copy of Martin’s new book.
