College Gaelic Football Team 1980s

This is a photograph of a college Gaelic football team, described in the archives as being from the 1980s. The exact year it was taken is unknown. Perhaps someone can provide us with a more accurate date.

For some reason the 1980s aren't greatly represented in terms of photographic record. If anybody has old photographs or memorabilia from this decade (or indeed others), please send an email  to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it - digital files are very welcome but it can also be arranged to have actual photos carefully scanned.

Seamus Heaney at Dundalk RTC

Looking through this 1974-75 Regional Technical College Prospectus there is a photograph of Séamus Heaney with a caption indicating that the late great poet was a visiting lecturer at the college. Fellow poets Máirtín Ó Direáin and Thomas Kinsella are also named as visiting lecturers. Perhaps someone has memories they might share of the presence on campus of these literary greats.

More photos from the Prospectus can be accessed by logging in.
