Surely it can't be 30 years ago?!

Oh yes it is.

It was the era of shell tracksuits, questionable moustaches and a distinct lack of health and safety protocols - everywhere.

But boy did Ireland and Dundalk celebrate during the summer of 1990 when the Boys in Green went on a magical and unforgettable journey at World Cup Italia 90.

A new slideshow of photos from Frank McAlevey and created by The Gathering Heritage for youtube gives a pictorial insight into the celebrations in Dundalk this day 30 years ago when the Republic of Ireland beat Romania in a penalty shoot-out to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Italy.

Enjoy.
