13/25: Dublin Riot / by Simon Mooney

13/25. The landlady put the newspaper down and called the police to say the football hooligans in the photograph were upstairs in her guesthouse. They ended up staying in Dublin quite a bit longer than planned. The night before, my first England game - a friendly against the Republic of Ireland - was abandoned after 27 minutes when the Irish scored and English fans rioted. Up to that point, I’d got almost nothing from the game but did better with the fighting on the pitch. This one got nine out of ten UK front pages. (For 25 Years of Mooneyphoto)
