Another deviation from politics to Shamrock Rovers and The programme (minus the ads) for the 1978 FAI Cup Final which was between Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers. Shamrock Rovers ran out one nil winners from a Ray Tracey penalty.
There’s a few nice bits in this, it mentions Eamon Dunphy refusing the offer of the managers job at Milwall , Some stuff on the Rovers player Manager John Giles, the fact that the O’Leary brothers Pierce of Rovers and David of Arsenal were both playing in cup finals that year.
From a Sligo point of view many of those in the line up were members of the team that won the League in 1977.
