A picture of Jim Murphy

The Dundalk F.C. Who's Who website was written, researched, compiled and edited by the late Jim Murphy (1936 - 2019), who was the club's official historian. Jim was a life long fan of Dundalk F.C. and the author of two books about the club, "The History of Dundalk F.C. : The First Hundred Years" [2003] and "C’mon The Town’—A Dundalk FC Miscellany" [2013] that was awarded the 2014 FAI Communication Award for Best Publication.

This website grew out of the research he continued doing after publishing those books. His vision for the site was

"publicise profiles for the players and managers of Dundalk FC. Initially it will consist of circa 375 players from the period 1926-27 to the mid-1990s. The current plan is to include entries for every player who has made a minimum of 30 first team appearances. It will also include entries for selected players whose total appearances were less than 30."

The site was developed with help from his sons Ruairí and Kieran. Jim passed in late 2019, leaving the work unfinished, but the site stands with over 350 profiles, an invaluable resource for people who want to know more about the legends who played for the Lilywhites over the years. Whilst it will no longer be expanding, please forward any corrections, errors or problems to the admin

The site launched in 2016 and below are Jim's acknowledgements from that time:
