This year marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Billy Behan.

His name may be unfamiliar, but football - and Manchester United in particular - owe much to Behan. As Chief Scout for the Mancunian football side in Ireland, Behan is credited with finding just about everyone - from pre-Busby Babe stars like Jackie Carey, all the way through to stars of the Italia 90 and USA 94 generation like Paul McGrath.

Gavan Reilly is joined by Donal Fallon for another episode of Hidden Histories.
