Dundalk V Celtic 07/11/1979

Tomorrow, the 7th of November marks 40 years since the 2nd leg of the Dundalk/Celtic European Cup tie. A game that has gone in history as the time that the small time Dundalk FC almost put the mighty Celtic out of Europe,, and would have gone on to play the even mightier Real Madrid in the next round.
And, on a personal note, it was also the reason my future Parents in law met!! My father in law, who is from just outside Glasgow came over for the match and got the shift!!! My future wife was born a couple of years later!!

Wow! Pity another anniversary is going unremarked. Hopefully the Social Media accounts will have something.
