'Liam Brady ran across to me and said ‘Paddy, your Panathinaikos players are f***ing mad!''
Peta Situs. If I wanted to further my career, I would have to move to a League of Ireland club. Like every footballer, I had an ambition to go to England so I was hoping I could fulfill that. Whereas he felt let down by the attitude of the Bohs squad, Mulligan now found himself rubbing shoulders with some LOI greats. He was an inside forward, who would score lots of goals.
If the wrong instruction is given to a young player, how quickly it could ruin their career. As fate would have it, Thomas departed the Hoops to take over at Bohemians and Liam Tuohy was handed the job in Rovers started that season with a friendly against Manchester United at Dalymount, and although they lost , Mulligan played exceptionally well. When Pat Courtney picked up an injury, he got his wish to move to full-back — albeit on the left side — for a game in Waterford.
From there, Rovers was great. Otherwise, I was a defender and I enjoyed my football immensely. The camaraderie with the lads was brilliant. Rovers were FAI Cup specialists in those days and Mulligan went on to lift the trophy four times — in , , and Paddy Mulligan of Shamrock Rovers and Ireland pic. Unfortunately, Mulligan picked up a bad knee injury four weeks into the trip and required surgery.
After returning to fitness, he agreed to join the newly-formed Boston Beacons in the North American Soccer League NASL , and although they folded midway through their first season, he still looks back on the Stateside experiences with fondness. Still dreaming of a move to England, the defender learned of interest from Everton in Harry Cooke then called that night to make arrangements to come to Ireland, but when he arrived over, the deal was exactly the same as before. Shamrock Rovers may have known something else, but certainly in those days, you would be the last to find out.
I wished him good luck and said to have a safe trip back. Manager Dave Sexton was waiting at Stamford Bridge for the pair, and a satisfactory contract was ironed out in all of 20 minutes. There was last-minute interest from Charlton Athletic, but Mulligan was certain of his preferred destination.
The staff were very friendly, the players were great and it was smashing. There was no problem at all.
It was a day of sport here. I would be trying to get your radio at the right angle to pick it up in the apartment, but you would be all over the place looking for the latest scores! The Pensioners did get their hands on European silverware in Peter Osgood put them up but Iganacio Zoco equalised in the 90th minute, with Mulligan coming on as a late substitute. Three days later, Osgood struck again along with former Ireland international John Dempsey in a victory for the First Division side.
It was a great performance by the team. Source: Getty Images. The following season, they reached the final of the League Cup. But the occasion was to be cut short for the defender, as terrible challenge from Mike Pejic forced him off the pitch on the half-hour mark before the Potters went on to claim a win. We had been the out-right favourites and maybe some of the lads thought it was going to be easy but it never was against Stoke. At international level, Mulligan became a mainstay in the Ireland team for 10 years from onward.
It was a tremendous time in his life, despite the fact that they had more than their fair share of disappointments. I played against some wonderful teams and many magnificent players.
Mick Martin and Gerry Daly were two very underrated players. They could get on the ball, they could play, they could attack and defend. They could head a ball too. Get out and play. We were at half-time and I remember being confident without being overly confident.
I was sure we have qualified for the World Cup in Argentina. The French went forward as the most attractive team in the tournament, and we had beat them at Lansdowne Road.
Brady got a goal that night. Of course, they do and it makes life a lot more difficult. But we had a great time at international level. I felt there was something special going to happen because there were at least 30, people in the ground already. He took to it like a duck to water, he was excellent. The whole team as a unit all clicked that day.

We had many memorable days. Captaining Ireland against England in By , he left Chelsea and agreed to sign for Crystal Palace. However, his time there overall was a nightmare as the Eagles suffered two relegations on the trot. You never want to be relegated as a club or on a personal level. I got two that day and we should have kicked on from there.
