What Happened To Roy Keane?
Before we delve into the details of who Roy Keane’s wife, Theresa Doyle, is, let’s get to know the details of the incident that led to Roy Keane making the headlines this week.
After Arsenal’s game versus Manchester United, according to the Metropolitan Police, Sky Sports analyst Roy Keane allegedly received a headbutt. A 42-year-old male has been detained on suspicion of assault, according to the Metropolitan Police.
Social media video captured the events following the altercation between Keane and colleague pundit Micah Richards at Arsenal vs. Manchester United. Keane and Richards both provided the Met Police with statements.
The Met Police had said earlier in a statement: “Police are investigating following an assault that is alleged to have occurred at the Emirates Stadium during an Arsenal vs. Manchester United match on Sunday, September 3.”
“There have been no arrests. Enquiries are ongoing. Any witnesses or those with information are asked to call 101 ref CAD 6961/3 Sept.”
A Sky Sports spokesperson said: “We understand the police are investigating an alleged assault by a member of the public immediately preceding the footage circulating on social media. “In the footage seen, Micah Richards was acting to diffuse a situation.”

Theresa Doyle: Who Is Roy Keane Wife?
Roy Keane’s wife, Theresa Doyle, has been with him since their 1997 marriage. Currently, the couple has five children. Keane doesn’t talk much about his marriage in public, but he once spoke candidly about it in an early 2000s interview with the Sunday Times.
“I don’t really mention her in public, but in fairness to her, she has been a rock in my life. Just brilliant. She reads me better than I read myself,” Keane said.
“I wouldn’t say Theresa likes every part of the package. She knows I haven’t got a halo over my head.
“Actually, that’s what she likes about me. She also knows I am not the nastiest person in the world.”
When the midfielder was representing Forest under Brian Clough in 1992, Roy Keane and Theresa Doyle came into contact.
“I spotted a beautiful girl in a club in town. Her name was Theresa Doyle, but she blanked me,” Keane once revealed of his encounter with the Nottingham-born beauty. “She was in a steady relationship and didn’t seem at all impressed by Roy Keane, the great footballer. In fact, I think my reputation was as a downer for all kinds of reasons.”
“From time to time we ran into each other around Nottingham. I knew some of her friends, who told me Theresa was a dentist’s assistant. “Eventually, after her relationship broke up, she relented, and we went out together. I was in love.”
In Mayfield, Cork, in the Church of Our Lady Crowned, Theresa Doyle became Roy Keane’s wife in a private ceremony. Together, Keane and Theresa are parents to five kids: Shannon, Caragh, Aidan, Leah, and Alanna. The family was living in Bowdon when Keane joined United before relocating to a fake Tudor mansion in Hale, Greater Manchester.
They relocated to Woodbridge, a medieval market town in Suffolk, in 2009 so they could be near the new team he was in charge of, Ipswich Town. They left in 2015 and listed the house for sale. Roy Keane also disclosed during his experiment on Instagram that he has two grandchildren, a granddaughter and a grandson.
