Mark Kinsella and Matty Holland. It wasn't supposed to be the central midfield partnership at the 2002 World Cup but it was and they did a stellar job, cementing their status as criminally underrated Irish heroes.
It's difficult not to talk about them as if they came as a pair but they didn't and since the end of their playing careers they've gone their separate ways. Holland has moved into media while Kinsella has now returned home to start a coaching career.
He was appointed as first team coach by Johnny McDonnell at Drogheda alongside the experienced Pete Mahon and now that McDonnell has left the club. Kinsella is stepping up to the plate for the time being at least.
Drogheda United can confirm that Mark Kinsella will take charge of the side for next Saturday's game against Derry City at the Brandywell.

The former Charlton man does not yet have his pro license but he will take over until the end of the season at least with the hope that he can steer the Drogs to Premier Division safety.
