Reading have released a video paying tribute to former Irish stars who have donned the blue and white shirt over the years to mark St Patrick's Day.

In total, 16 Reading FC players have also represented the Irish national side over the years -with David Meyler being to most recent to be called up to join the Ireland squad.

Stars of the 106 point campaign in 2005-06 Kevin Doyle, Stephen Hunt and Shane Long are among the  players featured in the video.

Charlie Hurley was the first Irish manager at Reading, holding the role for just over five years between 1972-1977.

Royals legend Eamonn Dolan also took the reins for a two week period in March 2013 after the sacking of Brian Mcdermott.
