HISTORICAL VIDEO -
First, on 30 December 1952, at Distillery’s Grosvenor Park ground, the first full
match played under floodlights, anywhere in Ireland, took place. The home side’s
opposition were English team Burnley, then challenging for the English First Division
Championship. 12,000 spectators attended the Burnley game, paying between 2s and
12s 6d to witness this momentous event. This revenue helped to pay the £750 that
it cost to bring Burnley over. Burnley, who had no game the previous Saturday, brought
their full League side, including Internationals Jimmy McIlroy (Northern Ireland)
and Billy Elliott (England). Burnley triumphed 3-
Also featured here is Distillery’s third ‘Floodlight Friendly’, on 29 January 1953, against English League Division 2 side, Blackburn Rovers.
