The draw for the second qualifying round of the Europa League visit of A.C Milan to Tallaght Stadium in a couple of weeks may sound like a dream fixture for Shamrock Rovers - and perhaps in normal times it would have been but these are not normal times.

That game will be played before no spectators; making it quite different from 1975, when several thousand people witnessed the great A.C. Milan held to a scoreless draw in Athlone.

To this day, it remains one of the greatest League of Ireland European nights.

Donal Fallon joins Gavan for another episode of Hidden Histories to discuss.
