My idea is that we need a section collecting an archive of all our great Irish weightlifters - North and South. I am thinking specifically of video footage, edited if possible - or send it to me and I will do it - with textual detail of lifter name, lift amount, venue, link to profile on this site, etc etc.

For example, I remember Joe Sheppard showing us footage of himself performing press, snatch and clean + jerk - now, this was at the Cream of Sport in 1979 I think - my thoughts are that this stuff is priceless to our sporting heritage and we can't afford to lose it, why not instead incorporate it into our site and use it as a part of our appeal to young lifters to particiapate in our fantastic sport.

Sean I second that. I would love to see old footage of the great Bruce, Joe, Whiteway brothers,Tommy Hayden etc etc. Its great listening to tales of the past lifters, including the lifter who would do countless split snatches on a bench in St Gabs - and video footage would be excellent.
