D.O.B. :24/05/1960
Place of Birth :Cloughglass, Co Donegal
After making his debut on his 21st birthday in 1981 against Poland, Packie Bonner went on to write his name into Irish football history on many occasions.

A native of Donegal, Bonner started his career with Keadue Rovers and, in 1978, he became Jock Stein's last ever Celtic signing. The following year, he made his first team debut and over the next 12 years, he made the number one jersey at Parkhead his own as he made 642 appearances for the Hoops before retiring in 1996.

He made his debut on his 21st birthday against Poland in 1981 and over the next 13 years, he became first choice for Ireland winning 80 caps - a record for an Ireland goalkeeper.

He is best remembered for his penalty save from Daniel Timofte at the 1990 World Cup, which, along with David O'Leary's successful strike, earned Ireland a place in the quarterfinals.

He worked as goalkeeping coach with the Irish senior panel under Mick Mc Carthy but when Stephen Staunton was appointed he relinquished that post.

He is currently the FAI's Technical Director
