View Full Version : Irish Football Artefacts

Just establishing here a new thread on the sale of interesting Irish football artefacts. Peter Geoffroy of Collectibles Corner (website with that name) usually has a decent amount of Irish football material in his auction sales. The sale closing today (Friday) has an FAI Cup Winners medal from 1977/78 stated to have been won by Steve Lynex at an estimate of 400. An LOI Shield Winners 9 carat gold medal from 1941/42 won by Cork United also has an estimate of 400. A Bohemians membership card from 1926/27 has an estimate of 50. Two books on the history of Home Farm are estimated at 25.

Will try to add further material as it comes up.

I have a friend who has two of the turnstiles from Milltown.
