On February 26, 1972, Pele - or Edson Arantes do Nascimento as began almost all extant reports - played at Dalymount Park, lining out for Santos against a Drumcondra/Bohemians select XI. While there was excitement at his arrival, and 27,500 fans paid to see him, fevered anticipation was not general all over Ireland. Simon Tierney, Newstalk Reporter brings us back to February 1972 when Pele graced Dalymount Park.
