Dutch based football brand COPA, who specialise in retro and lifestyle football products, have released a retro Cork City shirt recalling one of the most famous results in the club’s history.

The Cork City FC 1991 short sleeve retro shirt represents one of the highlights of the four years that manager Noel Mahoney was in charge. In the 1990-91 season, fired by the goals of John Caulfield, Cork retained the Munster Senior Cup and put together a 24-match unbeaten run that helped them to runners-up spot in the league. The reward for their fine season was UEFA Cup football and a dream draw against the mighty Bayern Munich. This was just Cork’s second-ever European tie but they put up a brave showing, holding them 1-1 at home before going down to two late goals in Bavaria in the return. It was fitting that the scorer of the first leg goal as the long-serving Dave Barry, a midfielder who had played in Cork City’s first ever competitive fixture seven years earlier.
