FAI pays tribute to Mick Meagan
Capped 17 times as a player, Mick was the first ever Ireland manager from 1969 to 1971 when the selection committee process for the Irish team was ended.
As well as winning the English League title with Everton, Mick played with Drogheda, Bray Wanderers and Shamrock Rovers in the League of Ireland and went on to manage both Drogheda and Shamrock Rovers.
“We have lost a truly great Irish football man with Mick’s passing,” said FAI President Gerry McAnaney.
“Mick was a history maker with our international team, he contributed so much to Everton, Huddersfield Town and Halifax Town in England and across the League of Ireland during his time as a player and a manager.
"Our thoughts are with all the Meagan family and their many friends at this difficult time. At dheis De go raibh a hanam.”
