Blueseum - Online Carlton Football Club Museum



Irishman Ciaran (pronounced Kieran) Sheehan originally came to Carlton as a prospective International Rookie back in 2009, having been invited to the club along with Zach Tuohy. While Tuohy stayed and established himself as a regular senior player, Sheehan (who was just 18 at the time) became homesick and decided to return to the Emerald Isle.

Back on his native soil, Sheehan resumed playing Gaelic football and made his senior debut for Cork in 2010. Skilful and courageous, he blossomed into one of the Irish code’s biggest stars, and in 2013 he was outstanding when he represented his country against Australia in the International Rules Series. This led to renewed approaches from Carlton, and in 2014 he agreed to have another crack at the Australian game.

Within the Blueseum you will find thousands of pictures and video clips of the players, the people, the games and the grounds that have made the Old Dark Navy Blues of Carlton one of Australia’s greatest sporting clubs.

There are lots of historically significant shots as well, like this wonderful 2001 image of a young Jack Silvagni at training with his dad, Carlton’s Full-Back of the Century, Stephen Silvagni.

Since 2006, this website has been produced by a dedicated group of volunteers who spend their free time delving into and recording the history of the Carlton Football Club. The site is based on the wiki concept (think of wikipedia) where registered users are able to create and edit content independently.

Therefore, everyone interested is cordially invited to join us. No experience is necessary, because you’ll be guided every step of the way and you will be making a real contribution to your club.
