We have a lovely slice of 90's nostalgia here for you today, as we have stumbled upon some glorious photos from Paul McGrath's testimonial at Landsdowne Road on May 17th 1998. An Ireland XI played an International XI comprised of players from McGrath's club teams such as Derby, Aston Villa and Manchester United, and there are some serious cult heroes in there. See for yourself:
Gary Kelly and Paulo Wanchope fight for the ball.
Dwight Yorke tries in vain to keep up with the pace of Ray Houghton.
Christian Dailly and Rory Delap look on as Mark Bosnich collects the ball.
Andy Cole had the toughest game of his career against young defenders Gary Breen and Richard Dunne.
Dean Kiely rocking the iconc purple "acid trip" keeper jersey of the late 90's.
Dean Saunders and Phil Babb in action. This game was packed with stars.
The man himself got a great reception.
