Lovely to see League of Ireland and Political Ephemera come together with a Dundalk FC Fixture guide from Dundalk based Fine Gael Councillor John McGahon. Hopefully we’ll see a Shamrock Rovers Fixture guide from a politician soon!
Many thanks to the sender

“Creating a Soccer Strategy” -A Response by the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition September 8, 2010

From early 2002 a policy paper entitled, “Creating a Soccer Strategy” -A Response by the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition.
“Creating a Soccer Strategy” were the conclusions of a ministerial advisory committee which was published in December 2001. The committee included amongst others Martin O’Neill, Sammy McIlroy, Bryan Hamilton, Gerry Armstrong and Billy Hamilton.
Upon its launch the then Sports Minister Michael McGimspey said his initiative was not aimed at short-term solutions.
“I want us to visualise where we would like to see soccer in 10-15 years from now, and beyond, so that together we can map the way ahead and put our football on a firm footing for the future.”

Things have possibly got worse since.
