That time of the year has come early this year. There's feck all to play for in the Premier League so everyone is more interested in the end of season awards. Neville and Carragher were picking their teams of the year last night and it got us thinking about Ireland's history of representation in the PFA Team of the Year
With Seamus Coleman being named at right back last year, it brought to eight the number of Irish players who have made a PFA team of the season since the beginning of the Premier League.
We seem to have a knack for producing full backs with Gary Kelly, Steve Finnan, Denis Irwin and Stephen Carr featuring on previous teams, along with the aforementioned Coleman.
The Irish player who has featured the most is Roy Keane unsurprisingly; being selected in a team of the year on five different occasions.
Here is the full team for each of the years an Irish player featured. Which team was the best?
1992-93: Paul McGrath and Roy Keane
1993-94: Gary Kelly and Denis Irwin
1996-97: Roy Keane
1998-99: Denis Irwin
1999-00: Gary Kelly, Ian Harte and Roy Keane
2000-01: Stephen Carr and Roy Keane
2001-02: Shay Given, Steve Finnan and Roy Keane
