The Football History Walking Tour has been taking fans of football and history around the Northside and Southside of Dublin City since August 2020. The tour picks through the various tales and controversies of Irish soccer from the 1916 Rising to Jack’s Army. Soccer’s journey from the hated ‘Garrison Game’ in the early years of the State to the heights of Italia ’90 is told with passion, humour and the right amount of misery from two ardent football fans
In this Podcast Gary Cooke of Apres Match and Aodhán Ó Ríordáin TD expand on some of the themes explored in their tours. Join the lads as they discuss the beautiful game and why it has an ugly history in Ireland.
Gary and Aodhán are joined by Tim Carey, the author of ‘Croke Park: A History’ to discuss the origins of the famous stadium and some of the myths that surround it.
