Excerpt: Patrick Joseph O'Connell (8 March 1887 - 27 February 1959), also known as Paddy O'Connell or Patricio O'Connell, was an Irish footballer and manager. He played as a defender, most notably, for Belfast Celtic, Sheffield Wednesday, Hull City and Manchester United. As an international he captained Ireland and was a member of the team that won the 1914 British Home Championship. However O'Connell is probably best remembered for managing several clubs in La Liga. In 1935 he led Real Betis to their one and only La Liga title and during the Spanish Civil War he took FC Barcelona on a tour of North America. Despite these successes, he died destitute in London in 1959.

As a result he made just 21 senior appearances, 18 in the league and 3 in the FA Cup. However while with Wednesday, O'Connell made two of his six international appearances for Ireland. O'Connell left Sheffield Wednesday for Hull City in March 1912 and subsequently made 58 Second Division appearances for City during the 1912-13 and 1913-14 seasons. While with City he also made a further three appearances for Ireland. O'Connell's impressive performances with Ireland attracted the attention of Manchester United who he signed for in May 1914 for a fee of £1,000.
