Return of Roy Keane


Madam, - Ronan A. Quirke (April 15th) is quite right. Roy Keane was indeed sent home. This followed an evil, foul-mouthed attack on his manager in front of the entire Irish squad. No manager could have tolerated this and Mick McCarthy took the only option open to him.

Roy Keane let himself down, he let his team down and he let his country down. To bring him back now would be a great mistake. No one is bigger than the team. It would send out the wrong message. Ireland does not need petulant prima donnas. - Yours, etc.,

FRANK CHEATLE, Westtown, Tramore, Co Waterford.


Madam, - With Keane in the team we have a chance of making the World Cup and even the begrudgers know that's the truth. So let's give up this pointless feud and prepare for the quest. Everyone is on board and nothing is going to stop us now. - Yours, etc.,

JEROME A. McCARTHY, Rathmines, Dublin 6.


Madam, - To paraphrase that moronic chant: Keane? No! - Yours, etc.,
