AUDIO: Very Passionate Liveline Debate On Wimbledon Moving To Dublin Back In The Day

AUDIO: Very Passionate Liveline Debate On Wimbledon Moving To Dublin Back In The Day
By Conor Neville

FAI President Bernard O'Byrne and Cork property developer Owen O'Callaghan locked horns on Liveline back in 1997 on the contentious issue of Wimbledon moving to West Dublin.

The debate also included the head of the 35-strong Irish Wimbledon supporters club.

Bernard O'Byrne was trenchant in his opposition to the idea, using the phrase 'Judas money' at one stage, a phrase which Owen O'Callaghan characterised as 'very unfair.'

We've written at length about the idea last year, interviewing Eamon Dunphy, one of the main advocates of the move, O'Byrne himself and Mark Jones of the Wimbledon supporters association. Have a read of it here.

Again thanks to Killianm for throwing up the video.
