Project Description

John Giles wants to tell his life story, in his own words. Sticking with the habit of a lifetime,  he’s going to say it as he sees it.

This is the tale of a young Dublin boy raised in the inner city markets area, a gifted  teenager who signed for the Busby Babes two years before the Munich Air disaster, who grew into one of the most revered names in English soccer with an all conquering Leeds United team.  It is the story of a father figure of Irish soccer who went on to manage for club and country and who with Eamon Dunphy became one of the most memorable double acts in the history of Irish television.
