Join us for the launch of Irish Sporting Lives, a collection of biographies detailing the lives of athletes from the island of Ireland.
Ulster University is delighted to invite members of the public to the launch of Irish Sporting Lives.
Serial winners and glorious losers, heroes and villains, trailblazing women, role models and rogues, all are here; so too are audacious sporting founders, enduring legends and forgotten or overlooked greats.
Through a selection of sixty lives from the Dictionary of Irish Biography, this book celebrates the diversity of Irish sporting history.
The Dictionary of Irish Biography is a project of the Royal Irish Academy.
It tells the island’s life story through the biographies, at home and overseas, of prominent men and women born in Ireland, north and south, and the noteworthy Irish careers of those born outside Ireland.
The online edition of the Dictionary of Irish Biography now features nearly 11,000 lives and continues to grow.
The launch will take place on Friday, 11 November, on the ground floor of the Birley Building, York Street, beginning at 6pm.
Light refreshments will be available.
