But the struggle for independence aside, there is another perhaps unknown anniversay that can be celebrated too.

An Beal Bocht or 'The Poor Mouth' - a savage parody of the Gaelteacht island autobiography, was published 80 years ago this year borne in the mind of Myles na gCopaleen, aka Flann O’Brien, aka Brian O’Nolan - a Civil Servant writing under a wide variety of pen-names, and sometimes even maintaining a dialogue with himself in the letter pages of The Irish Times.

Hidden Histories: Dublin Airport

Hidden Histories: Dublin Airport

Usually when we hear about Dublin Airport these days it has to do with the number of people picking up fines for travelling unnecessarily but there is still a decent level of traffic in our skies servicing people who claim to have essential reasons - although not even close to how busy it usually is of course.

Donal Fallon joined Gavan for another episode of Hidden Histories to discuss.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Billy Behan. His name may be unfamiliar, but football - and Manchester United in particular - owe much to Behan. As Chief Scout for the Mancunian football side in Ireland, Behan is credited with finding just about everyone - from pre-Busby Babe stars like Jackie Carey, all the way through to stars of the Italia 90 and USA 94 generation like Paul McGrath.
