The Life of Patrick O’Connell

September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Presented by Drumcondra Library.

On June 2015, a Dublin City Council plaque commemorating local footballer and football manager Patrick O’Connell (1887-1959) was installed at Fitzroy Avenue, Drumcondra.

This online lecture will discuss that plaque unveiling, and the fascinating life of O’Connell, who as a player captained Ireland and Manchester United, and as a manager led Real Betis to their sole La Liga championship in 1934/35. O’Connell also managed FC Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War, when he played an important role in securing the famous football club’s future.

Dr James Curry is a Dublin City Council Historian in Residence (North West Area)
