D.O.B. :11/12/1949
Place of Birth :Dublin
Noel Campbell is a former Irish footballer. He began his career with St. Patrick's Athletic F.C. in the League of Ireland before moving to Fortuna Köln in Germany in 1971. When he played against Borussia Mönchengladbach on August 11, 1974, he became the first Irishman to play in the Bundesliga. In all, he made 140 appearances for Fortuna, scoring 16 goals.

Career
Campbell won 11 caps for Ireland, one in his St. Patrick's Athletic days and a further ten whilst under contract to Fortuna Köln (becoming, in 1972, the first Irishman to appear in the national colours whilst on the books of a club based in continental Europe.)

He departed the international stage in somewhat ignominious circumstances, dismissed (rather arbitrarily, in the view of contemporary observers) within a minute of his introduction as a substitute in a 1977 World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia.

Made his debut for Shamrock Rovers on the 3rd of December 1980 in a Leinster Senior Cup tie. Took over as manager from March 1983 until May 1983.

Personal life
He is the brother of former St. Patricks Athletic player Jimmy Campbell, and the uncle of Shamrock Rovers U21 manager Dave Campbell (footballer)
