Comments about this page

Robby Fox (Robert Fox) is the boy who came second in the race (2.10). He was 14 years of age at the time. He says that the guy who won in the blue shirt was named Paddy Mc Taigh.

Finding this clip has brought so much joy as his family moved to Limerick a month after this race. Thank you for uploading this clip!
