A Great Man, Not a Good Man. Happy Birthday Gilesy

IRISH footballing legend John Giles celebrates his 70th birthday today and marked the occasion with the launch of his new autobiography and a Late Late Show tribute.

Billo, Chippy, and Eamon were also among the massive attendance at the AVIVA Stadium this week for a special function to honour the much-loved television pundit and to support the publication of what is sure to be a much sought-after book ‘John Giles – A Football Man’.
