: IRISH LEAGUE AT HOME

' Derry City'
J. C. Towers
In 1929 the Derry City Football and Athletic Club, Ltd., was registered as a limited liability company and joined the Irish Football Association, making Derry City the youngest club in the Irish League. Football enthusiasts may remember that Derry was represented before the war in senior football by a club called Derry Celtic.
Joseph McCleery was appointed manager of the newly-formed club and in less than a month succeeded in putting a good team in the field. At the end of the 1931-32 season he went to manage Glenavon and was succeeded by Billy Gillespie , once a Sheffield United and a famous Irish international player. Gillespie played continuously for Sheffield United for twenty years, with the exception of the war years when he served in the Army-an outstanding performance for a professional footballer.
Several players have been capped for Ireland while with the Club, including Bobby Irvine, Sam Russell , Jimmie Kelly , Robert Browne , and Matthew Doherty.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
