On This Day...
Cliftonville FC has the most extenstive history of any Football Club in Ireland and, as we endeavour to provide the
most in-depth representation of the last 130+ years as possible, we will carry weekly updates chronicling the many
events - both essential and comparatively insignificant - which have helped shape the Club we know and love today.
