Take a virtual tour of the Sligo Rovers Outdoor Museum

The Showgrounds Outdoor Museum is the first facility of its kind provided by an Irish football club.

It was developed by the Sligo Rovers Heritage Group.

It offers a unique, accessible overview of the fascinating history of Sligo Rovers.

Take a look here:

The museum consists of 100 panels erected at various locations throughout the ground, featuring legendary players, managers, club volunteers and famous supporters.

Given the important role played by the club in the community, it also represents a social history of Sligo over the last 90+ years.

The club’s original proposal to promote open access to the museum in recent months had to be revisited in light of public health guidelines, but as an outdoor facility, it will represent a safe and secure setting for visitors when restrictions are eased.

The aim in developing the museum is to demonstrate the diverse and inclusive history of Sligo Rovers.
