With the long weekend ahead of us, football fans might be looking for something to pass the time.
Well, the League of Ireland is back but for anyone that fancies a nostalgia trip, The Little Museum on Stephens Green, Dublin are launching a new exhibition about Italia '90 and the legacy of Jack Charlton.
Despite the sad news of Charlton's passing, football fans were able to take some comfort in seeing the euphoria, buzz, and sense of joy that swept through the country during that glorious summer of 1990.
Charlton was central to that.
During a recent interview with RTÉ, Roddy Doyle gave a flavour of what patrons can expect as they relive one of the greatest moment in Irish sporting history.
Aside from chatting about the exhibition, the author also discussed why he doesn't watch The Barrytown Trilogy, the housing crisis, and why Jack Charlton was embraced so fondly by the Irish public.
Standard admission for the exhibition can be purchased here and as to be expected, COVID restrictions and safety protocols are in place.
In a recent poll, 38% of Balls readers voted for Italia 90 to be shown in full on RTÉ. Well, this might be the next best thing.
The exhibition opens this weekend and runs until October.
This ought to get you in the mood!
