About this event

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum in collaboration with Europeana is collecting stories of Irish sports at home and abroad to be highlighted and digitally preserved in this unique collection, available to students, academics, media and everyone interested in Irish sporting memories. 

We invite you to tell us about any or all of the following: 

  • Being part of a team 
  • History and memories of your local sports club
  • Sports at school
  • Supporting a team or a sports person 
  • A sporting event you have been part of 
  • A sporting event you attended
  • Local sports heroes who deserve to be celebrated

If you have a piece of sporting memorabilia or sporting memory you think other fans would be interested in, let us know. It will be shared as part of Europe’s biggest online cultural collection and be recognised as part of Ireland’s sporting history.

If you have souvenir programmes, tickets, medals, photographs, jerseys, keepsakes, song sheets or other sporting memorabilia you’d like to submit as part of this collection, please do share them with us. To find out more about Europeana and their Sport Collection project click here.

How to share your story:

We invite you to come to EPIC at The chq Building on Saturday 25th September between 10am and 5pm to share your memories with us. You can register for a time to attend by clicking on "Select a time" above.

You will meet a member of our team who will record your submission and help ensure we have all the information needed.

Please bring any photographs, memorabilia, souvenirs or prizes you might have - they will be carefully photographed and returned to you.
