Garda Siochana GAA All-Ireland Football Team circa 1970

Willie McGee, Leixlip has furnished the attached photograph of the Garda Síochána Football Team circa 1970, that we hope to have published in next edition of Siochain Magazine.

It's a photograph of an All-Ireland Garda team that played the Tipperary Senior team to celebrate the opening of the GAA football pitch in Templemore, circa 1970.
