“Lansdowne FC has produced 117 players that have gone on to represent Ireland ... It has had 15 British & Irish Lions and one Argentina international - Felipe Contepomi. The club's distinct red, yellow and black jersey has been worn by the likes of Eric Elwood, Shane Horgan, Moss Keane, Gordon D'Arcy, Noel Mannion, Ronán Kelleher, Mike Kiernan, James Ryan and Devin Toner, in more recent years, and is celebrating its' 150th anniversary, this year. To mark the occasion, author and historian Ivar McGrath has compiled an exhaustive and entertaining history of Lansdowne FC that charts the many highs and lows of 150 years of rugby and both societal and historical shifts. Lansdowne FC: A History is as much a story about one Dublin club as it is rugby in Ireland, and all of the challenges it has faced and triumphs it has enjoyed over 150 years.” Patrick McCarry, Sportsjoe.ie
