How the Irish beat the Nazis October 17, 1936

A football programme emblazoned with a chilling swastika from a match between Nazi Germany and the Irish Free State is going on sale at auction for the first time.
The Ireland v Germany soccer programme - which is expected to fetch up to 500 euro -when auctioned by Whytes in Dublin.

Key tags from the H Blocks in the Maze prison and Celtic wood carvings made by republican inmates held at Portlaoise and Long Kesh are also in the historic sale. 

Ian Whyte, of Whytes auctioneers, said the set of ten key tags were found by contractors called in to demolish the notorious Maze, which closed in 2000.

"This is the second time we've offered these," he said. "We sold them in 2010 to a man, but he has since died and his son is selling them on."

They are expected to fetch 300 to 500 euro  when they go under the hammer.

The Ireland v Germany soccer programme - which is also expected to fetch up to 500 euro - is among the hundreds of unusual lots at a history, literature and collectibles sale hosted by Whytes in Dublin.

Mr Whyte said the lot would be of interest to sports fans who collect programmes, as well as those with an interest in European history.

"It's quite chilling to see," he said about the swastika. "In the past a similar programme fetched up to £800."

Historic military uniforms, decommissioned weapons, documents and a pair of duelling pistols will also be auctioned.

Another highlight is a framed 1960 US election poster for John F Kennedy, which is expected to fetch between 400 and 600 euro.Read more:
