George Best in Dalymount: Football As Never Before (Fußball wie noch nie)
Film Screening with Live Score
Thursday July 4th 2019, Dalymount Park
Doors/bars 7pm. Screening 9.30pm.

“Football is working-class ballet. It’s an experience of enchantment. For an hour and a half, a different order of time unfolds and one submits oneself to it. A football game is a temporal rupture with the routine of the everyday: ecstatic, evanescent and, most importantly, shared. At its best, football is about shifts in the intensity of experience. At times, it’s like Spinoza on maximizing intensities of existence. At other times, it’s more like Beckett’s Godot, where nothing happens twice.” (Simon Critchley, 2014)

TU Dublin, Bohemian FC and Dublin Business School are delighted to present a rare opportunity to see George Best at Dalymount Park – 51 years after he last graced the Home of Irish football.

This is a unique opportunity to see the island’s greatest-ever player return to Dalyer. He last took to the field in Dublin 7 in 1968 in a benefit game and famously also took on Waterford that same year in the European Cup when Matt Busby’s Manchester United came to Lansdowne Road as European champions.
