Niall Slattery - Football Hooliganism
The shadow of hooliganism hung over the game of football in England for a very long time, one man who was an active participant, Niall Slattery tells us his story.
At a time when football and violence went hand in hand, Niall became part of the most notorious gang in Britain, the Inter-City Firm - a hooligan group drawn from among supporters of London club, West Ham United. Brought to death’s door himself, he found a way out and underwent a drastic change.
Niall speaks internationally about the life he has lived & he will be speaking at Delvin's Parish Mission in Westmeath between March 18th & 22nd @ 9.30am & 7.30am each day. (Niall is also available to talk to secondary schools about his experiences).
