Sports Stories Collection Day

Presented by EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.
Do you have a sporting story or souvenir that you are proud of? 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 the Europeana Sport collection, available to students, academics, media and everyone interested in Irish sporting memories.
They invite you to share memories 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 them 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 EPIC.
You are invited to come to EPIC at The chq Building on Saturday 25th September between 10am and 5pm to share your memories. You can register for a time to attend. You will meet a member of the EPIC team who will record your submission and help ensure they 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.
