Fascinating Story, thought it might be of interest to the resident historians (and old farts). It is important to keep our irish footballing history and personalities alive and vibrant, something that Ciaran is brilliant at.

We are pleased to able to bring to you ‘Harold Sloan: A Forgotten Ranger’ (http://bohemianfc.com/?page_id=4457), a paper written by CIARAN PRIESTLEY on Harold Sloan, the first-ever goalscorer at Dalymount Park, a member of the famous 1908 IFA Cup-winning team and one of the club’s first true legends, who died fighting in the First World War at Combles, near the Somme in January 1917.

Ciarán Priestley has previous contributed historical features to the Bohemian website and is a keen historian. His published works include ‘Clonsilla and the 1798 Rebellion‘ (http://www.fourcourtspress.ie/product.php?intProductID=910) and ‘The Bohemian Football Club: The Enduring Legacy of an Idle Youth’ (http://www.dublinheritage.ie/media/bohemian_football_club_text.html). We would like to thank Ciarán for allowing us to reproduce and share his latest paper with a wider audience.

Can't hack another long relentless winter, can you Stu? The autumn blues, it's already freezing up overnight, soon your spit will be freezing in your mouth. Just when will the madness end, why does it keep coming back every year, year after year?
