Clonmel was well represented in Stuttgart on an historic day for Irish football in 1988 when Ray Houghton put the ball in the English net for a famous victory for Ireland and  manager Jack Charlton.

Pictured above are a group of Irish fans, with a number of Clonmel people among them, who were fortunate enough to be behind the goal in Stuttgart as a Ray Houghton header looped over the head of a despairing Peter Shilton and into the English net.
