Class of ’65 – All 3 parts in conjunction with the Nationalist

The Kildare Nationalist recently published a three-part series by Richard Commins of this parish (as they say) on the Class of ’65 – Kildare’s All Ireland Under 21 winning side of that year. which was the only Lilywhite football team to win an All Ireland title between the senior win of 1928 and the Under 20 win some 90 years later in 2018. The vast majority of that winning panel went on to play senior football and while they didn’t have the medals to show for it, they brought hope of provincial titles to the county again and individually a handful of the side went on to have long and record-breaking Kildare careers.
