One thought on “1933

  1. My father Morgan Ferriter (1907-1969) played for Mayo team in NFL 1933. Is named on the team on 7/5/1933 along with late Henry Kenny, P, Munnelly & others. Would a photo of that team exist anywhere in the Mayo archives of that time. Unfortunately the family lost the only copy we had. I am his daughter Teresa & my brother Sean Ferriter was a well known Donegal footballer where we all grew up.
    I’d be grateful if you could indicate where I might get photos of that year’s (1933) NIL team.
    I currently live in Fortfield Drive. DUBLIN 6W.
    Thanking you in anticipation!
