D.O.B. :20/04/1976
Place of Birth :Lifford




Shay began his career at Glasgow Celtic until moving to Blackburn Rovers in 1994. However he found it hard to displace Tim Flowers there and as a result he had two loan spells with Swindon and Sunderland before moving to Newcastle United in July 1997.

The manager at St. James' Park at that time was Kenny Dalglish and this was the second time the Scot had bought Shay having brought him to Blackburn Rovers.

Shay who won his first Senior cap against Russia in March '96, has been first choice at Newcastle for the last number of years.

Shay equalled Packie Bonner's record haul of caps (80) for a Keeper against Slovakia in March 07 in Croke Park and surpassed that mark in the return game against Slovakia in Sept 2007.

Shay enjoyed a superb campaign in the 2006 WC qualifying tournament , highlighted by his penalty save against Cyprus. Unfortunately his brilliant form was not enough to help Ireland qualify for the world Cup finals in Germany as a draw against Switzerland in Dublin meant elimination.

Was back to play superbly against Germany as Ireland kicked off their qualifying campaign for the European Championship of 2008 in Stuttgart but an injury playing for his club kept him out of the next two matches against Cyprus and Czech Republic.
Debut: v Russia 27/03/96

Clubs:Lifford Celtic, Glasgow Celtic,Blackburn Rovers, Newcastle United
