National Football Exhibition coming to Dundalk next year

National Football Exhibition coming to Dundalk next year

The National Football Exhibition is set to come to Dundalk next year.

As part of the build-up to EURO 2020, where four games will be hosted in Aviva Stadium, the National Football Exhibition helps to celebrate 60 years of the European Championships – as well as some Irish footballing history too.

It launched late last year in Dublin Castle and will be moving around the country between now and the start of the tournament in June 2020.

The exhibition is currently in Sligo until February 28th but in February 2020 it will be in Dundalk where it will be free to attend.

Other venues include Cork in March 2019, Limerick in June 2019, Waterford in August 2019, Donegal in September 2019 and Galway in March 2020. It will then move back to Dublin ahead of EURO 2020.

Separated into six different zones to represent various parts of Irish & European football, the Exhibition contains rare match programmes, unique match jerseys, treasured memorabilia, and exclusive pieces, such as specially commissioned artwork from Barry Masterson and Danny Earls, as well as submissions from kids involved with Fighting Words.

There is also an interactive element to the Exhibition to ensure that all members of the family can get involved with a Photo Booth to get your picture taken, a recording booth to practice your commentary skills, and quiz stations to test your footballing knowledge.
