1966 Mattie McDonagh Goal - Galway Complete 3 in a Row Mattie McDonagh's goal against Meath in the 1966 All-Ireland football decider was highly significant in that it was the only goal scored by Galway in their memorable final victories of 1964, 1965 and 1966.

Noted Irish journalist Tim Pat Coogan covers the tortured history of Ireland from the beginning of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, through the long, horrible years of violence, and up to the attempts to find peace.
After looking at the roots of Catholic discrimination of the Northern Irish state, which was created in 1922 at the same time as the Free State, Coogan points to Orange prejudice in housing, education and jobs and the lack of a Catholic outlet for peaceful protest.
