25 September, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

THE BEAUTIFUL GAME OR THE GARRISON GAME? A HISTORY OF LEAGUE OF IRELAND FOOTBALL

With Donal Fallon, Cormac Moore, Mick Wallace and Brian Hanley. Chaired by Tommy Graham

This year’s History Ireland Hedge School will focus on a discussion of the history of League of Ireland football. Why was it called the ‘garrison game’? What were the circumstances of the FAI split with the Belfast-based Irish Football Association in the 1920s? Why are League of Ireland clubs so poorly supported and resourced? Join Hedge School master, Tommy Graham, to address these and related questions with the panel: Mick Wallace (Dáil Eireann TD) and historians Donal Fallon (Come Here To Me blog), Brian Hanley and Cormac Moore (The Irish Soccer Split Cork  University press).

Friday, September 25th at 8.00pm in Printworks, Dublin Castle.

Admission FREE but reservations essential.
