From Christmas 1988 Issue 2 of the Shamrock Rovers Fanzine ‘The Glenmalure Gazette’ . At this stage Milltown had been sold but the fight to keep Rovers at Milltown was still very much on. We get news of some of the goings on around the campaign, details of how the developers would have to get planning permission, bids from later Rovers Chairman (and owner) John McNamara.
One of the highlights are The letters pages where we get all sorts including a letter of support from the band The Housemartins and one from the Rovers Legend Kitty Mellon complaining about a cartoon suggesting her dog Cindy had got fat.
Lots of anti Bohs stuff, reviews of other fanzines and Match programmes, rumours, 10 good reasons for supporting Rovers, the £5 Rovers Quiz , a spotlight on Bohs player John Reynor and lots more besides.
Apologies that I wasn’t able to get it into pdf format.
