We never thought about linking sports and literature, but WGT's correspondent Danny Murphy has done an excellent job doing just that at he commemorates the centennial of the death of GAA founder Michel Cusak on our homepage. Murphy draws the analogy between Irish sport through Irish nationalism and author James Joyce's reconstruction of the English language, also through Irish nationalism of the early twentieth century.
Check out the website; for nature enthusiasts, it has some wonderful information on the Burren, the limestone landscape hosting a unique ecosystem in County Clare.
