Description

Baker tries to best baker, as the two distinguished baking namesakes compete in a Gaelic football game at Casement Park. 

A GAA football match sees Kennedy's of Belfast compete against their baking brethren from Dublin. Fleeting glimpses of the houses situated behind the terraces indicate the residential setting of the Casement Park ground in Andersonstown. Prior to throw-in, the players pose for the traditional team photographs. Then the action gets underway, Dublin besting their Northern neighbours by 3-5 to 1-5.

Notes

Kennedy’s of Belfast was a baking institution, with the Kennedy family involved in baking in the city since 1793. Kennedy’s bakery of Dublin could also boast a proud lineage, being established in the Irish capital in the 1850s.
