Jimmy Hasty was born in Belfast and lost an arm at the age of 14 in an industrial accident. This did not prevent him from following his passion for football despite many believing that he would never succeed. He had initial success with Newry Town before being signed by Dundalk. He became one of their greatest strikers, helped them win a league title and scored for the club in the European Cup, becoming a club legend. Sadly aged just 35 he was murdered as he walked to work on the streets of Belfast by loyalist paramilitaries in 1974.
