Who was Pat Daly?

Pat Daly, also known as Paddy Daly is a former Irish football player who played as a centre half.

He joined Shamrock Rovers F.C. in 1949 as a defender. He also had a brief spell in England with Aston Villa in the 1949-50 season playing just three games for the Birmingham based club.

He won his one and only senior cap for the Republic of Ireland national football team on 8 September 1949 in a 3-0 win over Finland in Dalymount Park, Dublin in a World Cup Qualifying game. Daly's appearance that day was shrouded in controversy, however. The FAI had unwittingly infringed the rules of the World Cup tournament by bringing on a substitute, which at the time, prohibited players being replaced.

Daly represented the League of Ireland XI on 3 occasions while at Glenmalure Park.
