limavady united f.c. exhibition opening
The Limavady United F.C. exhibition opened on Saturday 7 July. Both former players and supporters of the club were in attendance, including Mr. R. Kennedy, Honorary Life President of the Irish Football Association and Mr. S. Curry, President of Limavady United F.C.
Visitors had the chance to see items belonging to former players such as Victor Wallace and Gerry Mullan as well as the Original Irish Cup, currently on loan from the Irish Football Association.
Limavady United F.C. has a long and interesting history. Did you know, for example, that the team defeated Everton on their homeground in 1886? Or that Limavady Alexander, predecessor of the current club, was one of the founding members of the Irish Football Association? These stories and many more are explored in the exhibition, which is open in the Centre’s dedicated heritage gallery (the Ritter Gallery) until 25 August.
Galleries are open Monday-Friday 9.30am-5pm and Saturday 10am-2pm, and admission is free.
