Brian Cowen on football teams 1980 and 81… July 10, 2010
Was searching around and found these. Brian Cowen in 1980 and 1981.
In 1980 he was on the Clara Under 21 County Championship winners and in 1981 he was on the Clara Senior team.
Funny thing the Johnny Bracken beside him on the Under 21 team could hardly be THIS OTHER ELECTORAL LEGEND FROM CLARA could it? 🙂
John Bracken -‘Man of the People’ – Laois-Offaly 2007 November 5, 2009
John Bracken from 2007, where he got a lot of media coverage due to his posters, literature and a campaign song but mainly because of his looks.
His policies were sensible enough but he didn’t get a huge vote. He failed again to win a seat in the 2009 local elections.
