Roddy Doyle May Not Dwell On Roy Keane's Time At Cobh Ramblers

Roddy Doyle's might not be too interested in Roy Keane's time at Cobh Ramblers when ghostwriting his book.


Roddy's characters have a history of being disparaging about the League, particularly the Man United loving Charlo, the notably unlovely father and husband who was a central character in Doyle's BBC adaptation 'Family', and the tellingly entitled novel 'The Woman Who Walked Into Doors.'

During the 1994 BBC series, Charlo brought his son along to Dalymount Park, for a game between Bohs and Pats. He was not impressed and the pair took off for a burger joint well before the end.

As John Dodge has noted in his fantastic top 10 League of Ireland pop culture references, not being associated with Charlo is not necessarily a bad thing.
