Ireland XI mural by Will Sliney

Marvel comics artist Will Sliney has produced a mural featuring an Ireland XI.

The mural, which was commissioned by Republic of Ireland kit suppliers Umbra, is now in situ in Sliney’s native Cork.

Former Liverpool and Sunderland midfielder Jason McAteer’s inclusion hasn’t been without its controversy, but Sliney has been at pains to point out that this is a personal XI of players with a story to tell, rather than an all-time XI.

McAteer’s crucial goal against the Netherlands on the way to the 2002 World Cup got him into the team.

The full team is Packie Bonner, Steve Staunton, Paul McGrath, Richard Dunne, Mick McCarthy, John Giles, Roy Keane, Jason McAteer, Ray Houghton, Niall Quinn, Robbie Keane.
