Got some interesting news from a family member the other day.

Will thrash it out properly in due course, but turns out that the house that my grandparents bought in O'Shanassy Street back in the day after heading into town from the farm (have written about it in the blog) was in fact purchased off Jim Quilligan and his wife.

Quilligan was in fact a North player in the VFA days around the turn of the century (match listing here):

His wife was a McNamara from Runneymede which explains the original connection to my mob, both geographically and genetically (McNamara cousins galore from up that way).

Pretty cool.

Round 10, 1983.

Some footage from a game where North inflicts the greatest belting Carlton has experienced in it's 120 year existence by 111 points at Arden Street. It was also North's highest ever score at the time. Carlton were also the reigning premiers at the start of the 1983 season.


The record stood for 32 years until it was surpassed in 2015.

Edit: The second quarter of that match

Yep North had plenty of fire that day, including a real one at a factory next to the ground which sent smoke billowing over the area. Dempsey and Glendinning were North's best, and McCann got 6--one of 13 individual goalkickers.
