Former Republic of Ireland international Jimmy Conway passes away

Former Republic of Ireland international Jimmy Conway has passed away. 

He was 73.

The Dubliner had a long and storied career as both a player and manager in his native Ireland, England and in the United States.

He is best known for a long spell at Fulham from 1966 to 1976, where he made 314 appearances scoring 67 goals.

His move to Fulham coincided with the start of his Irish career, and he amassed a total of 20 caps for his country over a period of 11 years, scoring three goals.

Prior to his move to Fulham, Conway started out with Drumcondra-based Stella Maris, before making to the move to Dalymount Park and Bohemians in 1964, where he spent two years, scoring 10 goals.

A midfielder, Conway left Fulham to play for Manchester City before joining the Portland Timbers in the US, where he spent two years and made over 60 appearances.

As well as a brief stint with Athlone Town, Conway spent the majority of his time in the US once his playing career finished.

He spent two seasons as assistant manager at Portland until 1982 when he joined Pacific University as manager where he spent six years.

From there, he moved to the Oregon State Beavers for a period of eight years until 1996. He returned to the Portland Timbers in 2000 and spent nine years as assistant coach until 2009.

Conway came from a large family, with four of his brothers also donning the red and black of Bohemians.

Conway's son, Paul, also enjoyed a professional career on either side of the Atlantic. Like his father, he played for Portland Timbers in the US while also playing in England with Carlisle United for a period of four years in the 1990s.
