When the final whistle was blown in the game between Bray Wanderers and Finn Harps on Friday 20th October 2023, it brought to an end Finn Harps Football Club’s 2002nd competitive game in senior football and also drew the curtain on the club’s 55th season in the League of Ireland.

Over those 55 seasons, 628 players have donned the shirt and played for the club.  Whether it was Jonathan Minnock who appeared in 485 games or the 73 players who managed to see action in just a single game each, all have contributed to the history of the club over their first 55 years in senior football.

This book WE ARE THE HARPS profiles each of those 628 players and also gives a season by season breakdown of their appearances, goals scored, etc.  Milestone appearances are included as well as clean sheet records for each of the goalkeepers.  From the famous to the infamous, they are all included and this is a record of their offering to Harps.  Nowhere before has a record of those who have contributed to the club been gathered and presented in one place.

Researched and written by lifelong Harps supporters Joe Doherty and Bartley Ramsay, this book is a history of those who have represented the club on the pitch since 1969.  The book will retail at €20.
