“Red Reminiscences” is an oral history project with Shelbourne football supporters and players. This Dublin City Sports Archive initiative provides a unique record of Shelbourne FC’s 115 year history from the fans’ and players’ perspective. Participants have been interviewed about their memories of Shels, both in domestic and European competition, and the excitement, thrills and disappointments of the past decades.
