Tommy Farrell (footballer)

Thomas "Tommy" Farrell (Irish: Tomás Ó Fearail; born 1937 in Dublin – died 20th July 2012 in Dublin) is a former Irish football player who played as a centre half. Uncle of movie actor Colin Farrell, he began his career at Home Farm F.C. and signed for Shamrock Rovers F.C. in 1957.

He earned two League of Ireland XI caps while at Glenmalure Park and made 7 appearances in the European Champion Clubs' Cup, UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup against SK Rapid Wien and Valencia CF amongst others.

Farrell also made one appearance for the Republic of Ireland B in 1960 having already played for his country at schoolboy and youth level. He broke his nose while touring the United States in the summer of 1961.[1]

Farrell won his first FAI Cup medal in 1962 alongside his brother Eamonn.[2] He shared a benefit game with Tony Byrne in May 1965.[3]

In December 1965 Farrell was suspended by Rovers for a breach of discipline.[4] He signed for Waterford United in December 1966.[5]
