Irish boxing exhibit Dublin-bound

Currator Jim Houlihan’s eclectic Irish pugilist exhibition will be hosted by the GAA Museum and the Irish Arts Center at the historic Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland from May 18th through August 31st. The exhibition features an array of robes, gloves, boxing bags, prints, photographs, painting and film footage of Celtic prizefighters from 1820 to the present day. Intriguing objects on display will include pieces from John L. Sullivan, Jack Dempsey, Gene Tunney, Barry McGuigan, Freddie Gilroy, Bobby Cassidy, Gerry Cooney, Wayne McCullough, Billy Graham, Billy Conn, John Duddy, Maureen Shea and many more. Given the connection between Croke Park and Muhammad Ali, who famously fought Al Blue Lewis at the venue in 1972, a signed glove and shorts worn by Ali that night have been added. Perhaps the most unique item in the exhibition is the late, great Irish fighter Dan Donnelly’s mummified right arm. The exhibit has previously been on display in New York, Boston and Omagh, Northern Ireland.
