Different Shade of Green: The Alan McLoughlin Story
The Bord Gáis Energy Sports Book of the Year – Shortlisted
In 1993, Alan McLoughlin scored the equalising goal against Northern Ireland at Windsor Park, a strike which sent Jack Charlton’s team to USA’94. Two years ago, he was diagnosed with cancer of the kidney. McLoughlin offered himself as a human guinea-pig for a new drug in the hope of helping others beat the disease. A true hero’s tale.
