All Our Saturdays Exhibition

Celebrating sporting excellence in Northern Ireland

Updated: 10/05/2011

On display in selected libraries throughtout Northern Ireland during 2010, All Our Saturdays was an exhibition of home-grown sporting talent as seen through the eyes of Ireland’s Saturday Night, Northern Ireland’s best-selling sports newspaper, which ceased publication in July 2008.

Inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and featuring a range of Northern Irish sporting talent, the exhibition was compiled by Libraries NI and offered a rare opportunity to see and hear how sport in Northern Ireland has evolved throughout the last 12 decades. It also brought a touch of nostalgia to those who queued every Saturday evening to secure a copy of the paper.

The exhibition featured 14 panels and 14 accompanying audio tracks informing viewers about Northern Ireland's sporting success through the years. Listen to the audio tracks in the media box, and browse the panels below.
