Talented winger Tony Folan signed for Brentford from Crystal Palace in 1998 having appeared in one league match for the Eagles.

The slightly chubby Irishman (who represented his country at U21 and B level) had some real magic in his boots and scored a couple of cracking goals with his strike at Peterborough (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3NYckAgQHw) standing out in many Bees fans memories.

He also scored on the telly against Cambridge at Griffin Park on a Friday night from the half way line.

Folan picked up a league winners medal in 98/99 but broke his foot the next season and was eventually packed off to Bohemians - probably via the New Inn where he could often be spotted very soon after the final whistle of home games.

Folan's ability was overshadowed by an apparent poor temperament as he drifted down the Irish Leagues, eventually playing at non-league standard in Galway.

He did however have his own song at Brentford (to the tune of Volare) :

"Folano (ooooo)
Folano (ooooo)
He comes from Ireland
He cost a hundred grand"
