Was talking to a fellow Bear about the game in 84 (UEFA Cup) ,when we were drawn against bohemians.

Think we lost 3-2 over there and won 2-0 at home.

Remember hearing of a right old rammy at the away leg! Did anyone on here Follow on to that game ?

One of my Grandads mates went to this and he told me that their bus got bottled and bricked at every town on the way home until they got past Newry. Obviously I don't know if he's exagerrating or not...

My cousin was at it. He told me that that there wasnt a window left on the bus on the way back. On the way to the game nearly every house at every village had somebody standing on the doorstep with arms folded watching the buses go by. he said it was well freaky

As we got off the ferries at Larne all the buses were waiting to pick us up (because no Scottish companies would take their buses to Dublin). Every bus, as I recall, was a big white Ulsterbus with a RAF type roundel on the back. No probs getting there, but the way back was legendary. Driver told us to pull up the seats of the bus and to prop them against the backs of the seats, lie on the floor and put our jackets over our heads. Think we last half a dozen windows, and even in wee villages folk were lobbing anything they could - we lost a window to o turnip!

Got to Newry and the squaddies that came on the bus were pishing themselves. Wandered up the bus to make sure folk were OK, and then let us know that half of Newry was out on the streets waiting for the buses to come through.

Can laugh now!
