Mayor set to open exhibition

The Sligo Rovers exhibition in the county museum will be officially opened by Mayor of Sligo David Cawley this evening.

It contains some of the most valuable pieces of history associated with Sligo Rovers. The exhibition was arranged by Sligo Rovers Heritage Group, which was set up to safeguard the club’s artefacts and mementos and to increase public awareness of the club’s long and fascinating history.

This project was prompted by the very kind gesture of the Curran family in presenting the 1937 League Banner to the club towards the end of last season.
 
In addition to the banner, the family also handed over a treasure trove of old photographs and programmes and this will form part of the exhibition.
