LA/32

The 1932 Los Angeles Summer Olympics were held in the 101,000 capacity LA Coliseum. It was a momentous Games for Ireland. Dr Pat O Callaghan won gold in the hammer-throwing event, and Bob Tisdall won gold in the 400 metre hurdles. The 1932 Games also saw Kerryman Eamon Fitzgerald compete in the triple jump. Fitzgerald was an accomplished footballer winning All Irelands with Kerry. He contracted tuberculosis shortly before he was due to marry in 1958 and died in Dublin without family, aged 53.

His life-story was lost until re-discovered by broadcaster Weeshie Fogarty as he cycled through Fitzgerald’s home place of Castlecove on the Ring Of Kerry in 2001. Further research led to the discovery of Fitzgerald’s grave in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin in 2004, where it lay lost for decades. His sporting medals, for both football and athletics, were kept in a press in his classroom at St Enda’s, the school founded by Patrick Pearse.

The LA/32 jersey carries a print taken from the official entry ticket to the LA Coliseum & remembers Fitzgerald’s life and Ireland’s Olympic legacy.
