Paddy Moore was born in Dublin on the 4th of August 1909 but sadly passed away on the 24th of July 1951 aged 41.
Moore is best remembered for his time at Aberdeen and his four spells with Shamrock Rovers where he won a league of Ireland title in the 1931-32 season and three FAI Cups.
His time playing for the boys in green was also short but memorable. He scored on his debut when Ireland held Spain to a 1-1 draw at Barcelona's Montjuich Stadium in front of a 100,000 crowd on April 26, 1931.
Senior International games were a rarity in those days - this was only Ireland's sixth game since the formation of the Football Association of Ireland six years previously.
Winning his second cap the following year, Moore was again on target in the 2-0 victory over Holland before a 30,000 crowd at the De Meer Stadium in Amsterdam on May 8, 1932.
Moore's third cap came in a memorable 4-4 World Cup qualifying game against Belgium at Dalymount Park on February 25, 1934. Having just moved to Scottish club Aberdeen, Moore was the hero of the 28,000 crowd when scoring all four Irish goals, he was the first player in the world to score four goals in a World Cup match.
Two months later on April 8, 1934 at the De Meer Stadium in Amsterdam Ireland went down 5-2 to Holland in another World Cup qualifying tie, but again Moore was on target - his seventh goal in four internationals.
Moore won just five more caps for his country - against Hungary (twice), Germany (twice) and Holland. He was never to score another international goal, but his early exploits guaranteed him a permanent place of honour in Irish football history.
