This trusted left back is 47 today and what a better way to celebrate the Corkman's birthday than a progression of his hairdos over his glorious playing career in one glorious gif ... OK maybe his one isn't as striking as David Beckham's.

The years may have passed but Denis' hairstyle stayed the same. Maybe be should all be like him. Unmoved by the passing of time, never carrying with us any airs and graces.

How To Be Like Denis Irwin:

Here are just a few tips to conduct yourself in a manner like an overlooked hero.

Keep calm under the toughest situations.

Irwin was a genius at set plays before a young David Beckham arrived on the scene. He managed to score 12 times from the penalty spot for his club, he did however miss one, but did did slot home the rebound.

Here is his Denis showing his skills under pressure with a free kick for his country in the 1998 World Cup Qualifier against Belgium.

Offer relationship advice to international footballers

Mr Dependable for club and country is also a kind, gentle man when it comes to giving out marriage support to footballing professionals, even while coming under fire from the panel at RTE.



Have no fear of Jaap Stam

When it comes  to picking your Dream XI for Manchester United, don't be afraid to eliminate obvious threats to both your position and skills. Jaap Stam at left back, no worries there Denny, and no Becks for the frees and corners, good call there.


Never forget your friends from home

Finally, keep close to the home grown boys. Irwin and Keane were keen on playing the odd round of golf, like the good old times back on the banks of the Lee. The left back also knows to let Keano get the right shot after the fifth time of trying.
