Sport & Exercise Research Group Monthly Research Seminar:  ' “A New Ireland Rises”?  Sport and the Remembering of 1916', by Dr Seán Crosson, Huston School of Film & Digital Media.

It is impossible to fully appreciate the forces that led to the Easter Rising of 1916, the Rising itself and moreover how the Rising has been remembered and commemorated, without a consideration of sport. Indeed, the Rising began against the backdrop of one of the highlights of the Irish sporting calendar, the Irish Grand National. This paper considers one of the largest and most viewed sporting commemorative events in 2016, the Laochra pageant organised by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), and hosted at Croke Park stadium on Sunday April 24th, exactly one hundred years to the day after the first shots were fired in the Easter Rising. The GAA was a key force in defining Irish identity in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and it was one of the most active organisations in 2016 in evoking that period and commemorating events surrounding the Rising. I have included a question mark, however, in the title of this paper – taken from the title of the penultimate scene in the Laochra pageant - with regard to the new Ireland that is being configured through commemorative events such as Laochra, both in terms of how ‘new’ these configurations actually are (given their indebtedness to older Irish iconography) and the problematic manner in which Irishness is being configured, particularly in terms of gender and militarism.

Exercise4Health is designed specifically for those who due to a number of health issues are reluctant to engage in exercise. The aim of the programme is to make available an opportunity for those otherwise reluctant to engage in exercise or try getting fit.

Being physically active prevents and helps control a multitude of health problems, especially, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. Exercise4Health provides a locally accessible opportunity for those with diabetes, heart disease, pulmonary disease; those recovering from stroke or cancer or those with breathing difficulties or other long-term health conditions, to commence a safe and beneficial exercise programme. The programme is ideally suited to anyone trying to reduce weight or indeed improve their overall health and wellbeing.

The Moore Institute and the Library present a book launch: Touchstones: John McGahern’s Classical Style by Prof. Frank Shovlin. Touchstones examines the ways in which John McGahern became a writer through his reading. The ultimate intention of the book is to draw attention to the very literary and writerly nature of McGahern as an artist, and to place him, not just as a great Irish writer, but as part of a long and venerable European tradition. All are welcome to attend.

NUI Galway’s School of Law will host a free public seminar on sports-related concussion and the law on Tuesday, 21 February. Guest speaker, sports law expert Professor Jack Anderson, will speak about brain injury litigation arising from concussion in sport.

The seminar is being organised by NUI Galway law lecturer Dr Brian Tobin, who said: “Reports of controversial in-game concussion incidents or of players being forced to retire because of repeated concussion seem all too frequent nowadays in pro rugby, in particular. The seminar will explore what might occur if the controversial issue of concussion in sport was to ultimately collide with its greatest opponent, the law, in the form of brain injury litigation.”
