Former Republic of Ireland international Jimmy Conway has died aged 73.

Conway played for Bohemians in the mid-60s before heading across the water for a ten-year spell with Fulham, and later moving on to Manchester City.

Four of his brothers also represented the Gypsies, one of them - John - joining Jimmy at Fulham in 1971.

Conway played in the 1975 FA Cup final for the Cottagers, which they lost 2-0 to West Ham. He was the only non-Englishman on the field.

A creative midfielder, the Dubliner finished his career in the USA with Portland Timbers, with a short loan spell at Athlone Town sandwiched in between.

Conway won 20 caps for his country under Mick Meagan, Liam Tuohy and John Giles. 

FAI Interim Deputy CEO Niall Quinn said: "I am very saddened to hear of Jimmy's passing and extend our sympathies to his family and friends.

"One of my earliest FA Cup memories is watching the 1975 final when West Ham beat Fulham 2-0 at Wembley and Jimmy was the only non-English player on the field. I can remember being so proud to see an Irishman playing in the FA Cup final, it was an inspirational moment."

FAI President Gerry McAnaney said: "Jimmy is from a very proud Dublin footballing family. On behalf of everyone connected with Irish football I would like to pass on our condolences to the Conways at this difficult time. May he rest in peace."
