Packie Bonner: ‘The Last Line’ launch
Football fans are being offered a chance to meet and greet an Irish goalkeeping legend as Packie Bonner attends his official London book launch ahead of the release of his new autobiography.
More than just the telling of trophies, titles and triumphs, The Last Line, is the story of a Celtic superstar, and a true great of Irish International football, and now Bonner gives his fans the chance to hear all about it at the London Irish Centre this Friday, November 6.
In this exclusive, one-off London public interview, Packie Bonner will share the highs and lows from this incredible colourful sporting journey with ghost writer of The Last Line, Gerry McDade.
There will also be a chance for the audience to put some questions to Packie Bonner. And the evening will conclude with an official book signing.
The Donegal man’s epic penalty save against the Romanian midfielder, Daniel Timofte, at Stadio Luigi Ferraris, on June 25th 1990— which put Ireland through into the quarter finals of the World Cup in Italia 90— still goes down as one of the greatest achievements in Irish sporting history.
It would also turn Packie Bonner into a national treasure and Irish sporting legend.
Bonner’s career, however, amounts to far more than this single sporting achievement.
Capped 80 times for Ireland, Bonner competed against the very best in the world, such as Ruud Gullit, Marco Van Basten, Gheorghe Hagi, Roberto Baggio and Gary Lineker. And as Celtic’s most capped player, ever, his career highlights with the Scottish club are remarkable.
The event starts at 7:30pm and costs £8/£6.
