By PAUL ROUSE, co laois…

“The tradition of Irish rural sports was one which celebrated weight-throwing. It is from this culture that so many of the 25 gold medals won by Irish athletes at the Olympic Games before 1924 can be found. It is a culture which is brilliantly documented in the collections of the Irish Folklore Commission at UCD”.
