While this forum was developed to promote Irish weightlifting and to keep current lifters informed of new developments I thought it would be good for Irish weightlifting if we honoured lifters from the past and their achievements.

I always liked to listen to Ronnie & George Whiteway and Laurence McConnell talk about lifters from the past and the feats of strength they produced. Given a lot of these lifters occurred during a period of time when the split snatch and split clean were the techniques used and also they had the third exercise, the press, to compete at I was often left with great admiration for the totals they achieved.

Obviously this section will not be a success without the help of people with collections of photos and memories of past lifters. Currently a lot of the photos that have been uploaded were kindly provided by both George Whiteway and Maurice Glover.
