The Dundalk FC programmes and stuff megathread

Those of you who know me will be aware of my dark secret.... I'm an anorak-wearing programme collector. With the lockdown and everything I'm getting around to sorting through several thousand programmes, books, tickets etc. I'll use this thread to offer some of my spare stuff, to beg for your spare stuff and to showcase some programmes etc for your entertainment. Even if you're not a memorabilia nerd there should be some interesting stuff here for the history buffs.

Let’s start at the beginning (sort of) and Dundalk’s first game in Europe. As league champions for the second time in 1963 Dundalk qualified for the European Cup. Our first tie was against FC Zurich. With no floodlights in Oriel the home leg was moved to Dalynount Park. This is the programme from the home leg, a 3-0 defeat. All the Dundalk home European programmes from the 60s are hard to find, but this is probably the most common of the five home games. (Tickets from all home games before the 90s are very hard to come by.... most spectators would have paid cash on the gate and few of the relatively small number of tickets for the stand were retained. If you have any tickets for any of Dundalk's home games from Wettingen, Ajax, Red Star or earlier let me know!)

And the away leg.... a famous 2-1 win, the first for an Irish club in the European Cup. Dundalk went 2-0 up and hit the bar, but it was not to be. The programme from the away leg is probably the rarest of all Dundalk's European programmes. Rarer than rocking horse poo.

Ha, yes, our Serbian friend hasn't been on in a while! No, I'm missing that one myself... have one from Belgrade though!

No worries man, I got another one from another who was there!

Meanwhile, it's 27 years today since my first FAI Cup final with Dundalk.... not the best final ever, a fairly dismal game v Shels in 1993, and a 1-0 defeat.

Three FAI Cup final programmes, from back in the day when making 3 cup finals in 5 years seemed like an achievment!

1977 v Limerick, 1979 v Waterford and 1981 v Sligo

I wonder will the programme v Legia Warsaw eventually achieve rarity status because of the venue - "Dublin Arena?"

Just dug this thread up to say that last night's publication was epic. An absolute credit to Gavin and all involved. 3 euro is an absolute steel if you head to issuu.com. Filippo writes some very nice introductory pieces. Colovic is interviewed and says he doesn't like our pitch (it does seem to be playing weird since lockdown).

There seems to be an error on the website. It told me €8 shipping, then didn't apply any shipping when I bought two of them. I've also ended up buying four, cos the paypal thing didn't seem to work the first time.
