Roy Keane is a Manchester United and Ireland soccer icon. He is one of the most successful captains to ever step foot in the history of the Premier League. Roy served the legendary reds for 13 incredible seasons. He is known to be one of the most brutally sarcastic athletes to ever exist on the soccer scene. Even his wife Theresa Doyle couldn’t save herself from being a victim of Roy’s sarcasm.
Roy Keane is one of the most aggressive soccer players to ever exist and his leadership skills on the pitch were exceptional. He handled superstar egos in the Manchester United dressing room, year after year with ease. After his playing career, he tried his hand at managerial jobs. But after a few stints in the English second tier, he became a full-time soccer pundit. In 2019, Roy managed Nottingham Forest as the assistant manager.
The full-time Sky Sports pundit revealed a story about his arm tattoos last year in the month of August. Roy has four of his five children’s names tattooed on his right arm. Shannon, Caragh, Aidan, and Leah have their names engraved on their father’s arms.

Roy’s wife, the mother of his children, asked Roy, why does he not have Theresa’s name tattooed on his arms. The reply the 51-year-old gave was a very brave one indeed. He said, “They will always be my children, but you may not always be my wife, to which she took exception.” Roy’s answer definitely didn’t please his wife and he said laughing that this conversation caused him a crisis at his home.
When did Roy Keane get married?
Roy Keane met Theresa Doyle in 1992 when he was playing for Nottingham Forest under the ever-iconic Brian Clough. He once talked about meeting Theresa for the first time. He said, “I spotted a beautiful girl in a club in town. Her name was Theresa Doyle but she blanked me,” about meeting Theresa for the first time ever.
Roy also shared that Theresa was in a relationship when he met her. He knew some of her friends and ran into her from time to time. He finally got the chance to go out with her after Theresa broke up. Roy said, “I was in love with Theresa”. They eventually got married in 1997 in presence of family and friends at the Church of Our Lady Crowned in Mayfield of Cork city.
Who is Roy Keane’s wife Theresa Doyle?
Roy Keane is a private man and likes to keep his personal life private. He never really talks about his wife on television. But whenever he has mentioned Theresa, it has shown how much he is in love with her. Roy mentioned Theresa as a ‘rock’ in his life. He also said, “She reads me better than I read myself,” about his wife’s understanding.
It seems like Theresa takes care of their five kids and his home. Roy however, did mention that when he met Theresa, she was an assistant at the dentist’s office. She also completed her schooling in England at a dental school. Right now, she isn’t employed or at least hasn’t shared anything about her professional life.
The tattoo reply by Roy was a hilarious one and it was done in all good faith with Theresa. Roy has kept it no secret how much he loves his wife and family, and they are married for 26 years now. But in all fairness to Roy their fifth child Alanna doesn’t have her name tattooed yet on her father’s arm, and it will be interesting to see how her conversation about this goes with her father.
