Keano at Sunderland

My favorite Corkman will be taking up the job at Sunderland…

Niall Quinn seems to have put Keano in the company of Irish patriots with his statement about Keane’s rip on Mick McCarthy back in Saipan (2002 World Cup):

[quote]"People talk about Irish patriot Robert Emmet’s speech from the dock. They talk about the oratory of Brendan Behan, Eamon de Valera, Michael Collins.

“But Roy Keane’s 10-minute oration can be mentioned in the same breath. It was clinical, fierce, earth-shattering to the person on the end of it and it ultimately caused a huge controversy in Irish society.” [/quote]

:laughing: a bit of a stretch methinks… :sunglasses:
