Martin O'Neill was an international and top flight football player.
Martin O'Neill won a First Division title and two European Cups with Nottingham Forest.
Martin O'Neill is a successful manager, winning two League Cups with Leicester City and three Scottish Premier League titles with Celtic.
Martin O'Neill has just led the Ireland to Euro 2016.
Martin O'Neill is a fan of American Football.
Does that mean that Martin O'Neill should have been in the BBC studio during their coverage of Super Bowl 50 as a pundit.
What followed from O'Neill was superb. His headphones kept falling down his face. He revealed the whole Irish squad were at the game as a treat. He even compared Cam Newton to Roy Keane.
Keane himself travelled with O'Neill with the latter admitting his assistant manager was too shy to go on air. They did, however, enjoy some time in Johnny Foley's Dueling Piano Bar where they posed for photos with some Irish folk.
