Description

Meet the Irish men and women who aimed high in the sport they love. From Dan Donnelly, our first heavyweight boxing champion, to our greatest runner, Sonia O’Sullivan. From Brian O’Driscoll’s amazing rugby performances to Rosemary Smyth’s rally driving brilliance.

From the heroic rowing of the O’Donoval brothers to the our women’s hockey team: the first ever Irish team to reach a world final. Featuring many people whose achievements have fallen from view, such as Anne O’Brien (the first Irish female professional football player) and Francie Barrett, the first traveller to represent Ireland at the Olympic Games. The remarkable stories of these trailblazers from throughout Ireland will inspire and excite children of all ages.
