FAQ's

What is the mission of Irish Legends?

Irish Legends was created as a home for those interested in Notre Dame football history, books, collectibles and photographs. While the main focus of the site will be football, we realize that the University is much than its athletic teams. We are also interested in the history of Notre Dame's campus, students, professors and its staff. Our goal is to be a source of information for all these entities.

Who are the proprietors of Irish Legends?

Vince Gratzer is a lifelong Notre dame fan and subway alumni. (See my introductory letter) He is a former teacher who is freelance historical researcher for feature films, television, and documentaries. Vince is also producing a documentary about the 1935 Notre Dame - Ohio State game, the original "Game of the Century."

Jack Fisher is our co-creator, technical guru and webmaster. Jack is a St. Louis based website designer, photographer, technical whiz, friend and all-around nice guy. (Rumors afloat that Jack will design websites for BBQ, chocolate and red vines are totally unfounded.) Jack is working on a website called caloriecounter.com and can be contacted at jack@caloriecounter.com
