Saints Alive! - St Pat's In The Brian Kerr Era (1986-96)
An interview with Dermot Looney and Brian Kerr.
This event at Richmond Barracks will see former Pat's manager and Irish football legend Brian Kerr interviewed by St Pat's historian Dermot Looney, author of the recently-published Saints Rising - The Early History of St Patrick's Athletic FC.
Brian will speak about his ten years in charge at the Saints, bringing a club who had fallen on hard times back to the top of Irish football to win two League of Ireland Premier Division titles.
The event will explore the move away from Richmond Park, the struggles of getting back to Inchicore, adventures in Europe and further afield, and some of the characters on and off the pitch who made this a golden era for St Pat's and football in Dublin 8. The interview will be accompanied by videos and images from the era, and will feature a Q and A session for those in attendance. All welcome.
