Tomorrow, March 21st, marks the birthday of one of the most important figures in modern Irish sporting history - Oscar Traynor.

There’s an FAI Cup still named in his honour, but things could have gone very differently had he been less fortunate on the barricades of his youth.

Traynor’s story is deeply tied to the history of soccer in Ireland, a game he vigorously defended against opposition from politicians and clerics alike.

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