Thoughts, opinion, general wondering and the odd pointless observation.

Sweden v Ireland. Stockholm, 1949
The last time Ireland were in Stockholm for a World Cup qualifier was over sixty years ago.
The team that took to the field that day featured iconic names like Jackie Carey and Con Martin.
But, there's just one survivor.
I delved deeper into a period of Irish football that
resulted in the country's very first World Cup appearance.
Originally broadcast on RTE 2FM's Game On, 21/3/2013.
A firm handshake to Stephen Finn, Mark O'Sullivan, Philip O'Connor and Gary Spain.
Special thanks to Stefan Lyssarides at Sveriges Radio.
