    Here's a wee excerpt from a programme article I did for CCFC v Djurgardens. It just recalls an incident from the night before the away leg, as Pat maintained a long-standing personal tradition:


    "There’s a nice little cameo about to unfold this evening. Pat McAuliffe likes to get togged off at these training spins so he can modestly tell the world that he played and scored at Bayern Munich, Slavia Prague, Gothenburg, Malmo and so on. The Rasunda is too tempting for Pat to let the chance go by. While he’s inside getting changed, Noelle Feeney organises a guard of honour for him by the tunnel and we’re all lined up waiting for the Great One. The stadium officials are bemused, wondering what the fuss can be about. Out runs Pat, like a star signing, and we applaud and cheer loudly. McAuliffe takes it all in his stride, hands over his head clapping like a Beckham or a Ronaldo and straight out into the middle of the pitch he goes where he claps and waves to each empty stand in turn and laps up an imaginary ovation. He’s a gas man, is Pat. Damien and Hilly, meanwhile, are working the lads away all the time in the background."
    ...Schwanholz, Herisau: a little bit of heaven...

    Jimmy Dainty, what a player, a wizzard on the right wing winning two leagues and two cups for Dundalk between 1976 and 1980 including a double (79), he was a first cousin of the keeper of the time, Richie Blackmore, both came over from the Birmingham area mid 70's.

    He was one of my very earliest memories as a young Dundalk fan.

    RIP Gerry Brennan, life long Pats who has been ill the last decade or so. I’d say most would remember him and his wife from the late 90’s at Pats.
