    Part seven deals with the painful period in time that almost caused the death of our wonderful club thanks to the actions of some heartless Glasgow businessmen.

    The year 1888 held a number of notable historic events including the deaths of five London women at the hands of ‘Jack the Ripper. Inventor John Logie Baird was born that year and Vincent Van Gogh painted ‘Sunflowers’ while Keir Hardie founded the Scottish Labour Party. Whilst all of that was going on a significant number of players on the books of Hibernians were approached by John Glass and his associates and offered financial inducements to join Glasgow Celtic.

    Part Six of the history of Hibernian FC looks at the near death of the Club thanks to the abhorrent behaviour of unscrupulous Glasgow businessmen.

    Since their creation some thirteen years earlier, Hibernian had been the darling of every Irish Catholic immigrant in Scotland and the fact that Canon Hannan had always given priority to assisting charitable causes wherever and whenever possible, many needy people had been helped financially by the fact that gate monies from charity matches were always substantial, given the drawing power of the greens from Edinburgh.

    Part five of John Campbell's look back in time tells of Scottish Cup glory and International recognition for some of the players which had the fans of Hibernian FC sitting on top of the world!

    On the playing front there were to be changes before the next season would start with Michael Whelahan’s great friend Malachy Byrne finally hanging up his boots to concentrate on assisting with the running of the Club. A new goalkeeper was signed, from Morton, John Tobin and he was to go on to have a great and illustrious career with Hibernian.

    Whenever the name of Hibernian Football Club is mentioned there's a chance that someone will make reference to the Famous Five but who were these men that wrote their names into Hibernian folklore? This is the first of a two part article in which John Campbell looks back at those halcyon days

    If you look up the word LEGEND in a dictionary you are very likely to find the following definition: Someone or something very famous and admired, usually because of their ability in a particular area. Those words pretty well sum up the Hibernian forward line Smith, Johnstone, Reilly, Turnbull and Ormond that played together in the 1940’s and 50’s and which would collectively become known to Hibs fans and indeed football fans the world over as The Famous Five.
