Gaelic Echo, April 1956

Present senior football champions are Tara’s of Birmingham. A team which always serves up football of a very high standard. They contested the final on three consecutive years and were finally rewarded last year when they defeated a fancied Emmet’s side. Emmet’s had previously dethroned the great Shannon Rangers of Coventry, who had reigned supreme….no doubt, Shannon Rangers will be all out to recapture the title, but I am told that Tara’s will have an even stronger team this year.

A force that must be reckoned with will be John Mitchel’s of Birmingham, a team with a glorious record.
