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 

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 .
