Tells the remarkable story of one of Ireland's greatest yet neglected sporting heroes, Peter O'Connor, 1906 Olympic gold medallist, long jump world record holder and Irish nationalist. This book brings to life a forgotten era of Irish athletic achievement and provides a fascinating social commentary of the life of a young man of ambition in late Victorian Ireland and the early years of the twentieth century.

It also describes the frustration of many Irish nationalist athletes of the time who had to compete for Britain on the international stage.
