Ahead of the Premier League kick off tonight, I've examined the records to find the last Ireland player to start a PL game for each of the 2017/18 teams: http://irish-abroad.appspot.com/Blog?id=8723519233567936041

Posted this on Twitter on Thursday: https://twitter.com/irish_abroad/status/895639984278982656
Quote The most @FAIreland players to start a @premierleague game is seven: @stokecity v @SunderlandAFC
on 4th February 2012
The starting XI from both sides featured @wildog87, Glenn Whelan, Rory Delap, @JonWalters19, John O'Shea, @DavidMeyler7 & @JamesMcC_14


Paul Fennessey of the42.ie, who follows me on Twitter, published this earlier today: http://www.the42.ie/tracing-the-marginalisation-of-irish-players-in-the-premier-league-3541394-Aug2017/
Which includes the following paragraph
Quote Ireland actually had its highest number of Premier League representatives as recently as the 2011-12 season (33), with Mick McCarthy’s Wolves providing no fewer than six of the individuals in question. That season also happened to feature a record for the number of Irish players starting a game — Stoke v Sunderland on 4 February 2012 featured seven players from these shores: Rory Delap, Glenn Whelan, Jon Walters and Marc Wilson for the hosts, as well as David Meyler, James McClean and John O’Shea for the visitors


It's entirely possible that he came across this piece of trivia while researching the article, draw your own conclusions

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.
