Irish Sporting Heritage

The Irish Sporting Heritage Project is building a history of sporting sites in Ireland. These are the spaces in which ordinary people have congregated, where community identities have been formed and where excitement and disappointment have sat side by side.

Contribute to this history by sending us information for a national database. It covers all sports from across Ireland over the past 150 years.  This database is now available for the public to search.

Each month we will feature a different sporting venue on the website.  Send us information if you would like to recommend a ‘Featured Site‘.

If you are involved in any aspect of sporting heritage we would be happy to include your information on our links page.
