A blast from our past
- Derek Donnelly, Drumcondra FC with Gernot Zimmermann
FC Nürnberg fan called Gernot Zimmermann approached Drumcondra FC and asked if we could meet him when he was over for the Ireland V Germany 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday 12th October 2012.
Gernot wanted to present us with an official match day programme from the European Cup game that took place between FC Nürnberg and Drumcondra in 1961. Gernot's relative Zenger played for FC Nürnberg at that time.
We were only too happy to meet Gernot and talk to him about his interest in the Drums glorious past. We thank him for his lovely gift to our club.
Greetings from Lebanon Pennsylvania.
As a former member of 'Drums' it was great to see a photograph of my old teammate, Leo Ward, looking so well. Please give him kind regards. He was one of the nicest people it was my privilege to know. Glad to see that the 'Drums' name is still flying high.
(No problem message passed on to Leo. Great to hear from former players)
Drumcondra Football Club would like to express our sincere condolences on the tragic passing of Joe Dunne (Joe's Shearcutz, Local Barber, Drumcondra Road) on Wednesday 1st August. Joe was a good friend of the Drums and helped with sponsorship of a lot of our teams over many years. Deepest sympathies are sent to Joe's family and friends.

Dear Frank/Drumcondra FC
On behalf of Leo, Carol, Jean and Paul Ward, I wish to thank you and your colleagues in Drumcondra Football Club for replacing Leo's stolen medals and also for presenting same to him on the occasion of his 93rd Birthday last Friday.
Leo, his family & friends have stated on more than one occasion since then, that it was a very original & wonderful gesture on behalf of Leo's former and beloved Club and it is very much appreciated by all.
Please extend our thanks to Paula Martin and Derek Donnelly for not only attending on the night but also being so nice to Leo. In due course perhaps you would contact me when you wish to return the scrapbook & if you have any further information on it or its contents, I would be grateful.
