1950 Irish Football Team
Irish Football is a rugged sport that has its heroes and its fans not only in Ireland but wherever the Irish go around the world. Lakeview Irish had their own team a few years ago and engaged other teams, such as Merrill. This Picture of the Lakeview team was taken about 1950 and was loaned by Danny and Kit Collins.
