Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn by Sheedy in the Euro 1984 Qualification Group 7 match against Holland played at Dalymount Park, Dublin on the 12 October 1983. This was Sheedy´s first call up with the senior side after the appearances he made with the Under-21 side. The midfielder started on the bench where he saw the goals from Waddock and Brady before half time. But this supremely talented Dutch side turned things around in the second half with Gullit bagging a brace and van Basten on hand to  make the final score 3-2. Sheedy came on for Grealish in the 82nd minute to make his full international debut and attempt to find an equaliser. The left winger went on to represent his country 46 times between 1984-93 and is fondly remembered for being the Irish player to score a goal at a World Cup Finals in 1990.
