I remember seeing the snowy images of the men landing on the moon on a neighbours TV as there were not many television sets in rural Ireland back then,it was a communal event to visit the neighbours for major events  especially for the All Ireland Finals , FA and World Cups.Everyone was also interested in that the third member of the crew was a Michael Collins,had he Irish Roots ?..

The Eagle has landed,That’s one small step for a man;one giant leap for mankind…never to be forgotten quotes from Neil Armstrong.
