Team Ireland in the Bejing Olympics

The Olympics are upon us again ,let’s spare a though and wish our Irish Athletes the best of luck .To find out  who is actually representing us IRELAND see the link http://www.olympicsport.ie/Profile.aspx?pageid=68 

This Olympics like many previous Olympics are not without their problems and political attachments and the  Scourge of “Drugs in Sport” of course.The first Olympics i saw was 1972 ,overshadowed by the massacre of the Israeli Athletes by the Black September ,later there was Moscow /Los Angeles The Cold War boycotts etc etc…

What a pity Sports and Politics is a mixed bag .
