You may have passed it whilst walking on South Circular Road, the blocky building, just down from Griffith College. That’s Dublin’s National Stadium. To anyone who knows it, “It’s the home of Irish boxing”, but it’s also home to so much more.
Did you know, it’s where U2 earned their first record deal? It’s where 16 Irish Olympian medallists got their first licks in? And, that it’s home to Dublin’s longest running bingo hall?
No? Well, sit back and listen to the story of Dublin’s National Stadium, as told by those who know it best. This is the story of the boxing and the bingo.
