Who was Paddy Moore?

Paddy Moore was an Irish professional football player who played for, among others, Shamrock Rovers and Aberdeen. Moore was a dual internationalist and played for both Ireland teams – the FAI XI and the IFA XI.

In February 1934 Moore scored four goals for the FAI XI in a World Cup qualifier against Belgium. As a result he became the first player ever to score four goals in a World Cup game. However injury and alcoholism combined to blight both his career and life and he was only 41 when he died. In September 2006 Moore was posthumously honoured by Shamrock Rovers at their Legends Ball.
