A FOOTBALL programme emblazoned with the chilling image of a swastika from a match between Nazi Germany and the Irish Free State is going under the hammer.

The programme, which is expected to fetch up to €500, is being offered at a sale hosted by Whytes in Dublin in March.

The international fixture, which Ireland won 5-2, was staged at Dalymount Park in Dublin on October 17, 1936.

Footage of the game can be seen on www.britishpathe.com.
