This web site gives results of each Rás Tailteann from the first event in 1953 to date. The older information was compiled from my own records and through research in the National Library and Dublin Corporation's Gilbert Library. If you find any omissions or errors please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more complete information read "The Rás" by Tom Daly published by The Collins Press in 2003 or "The Rás" by Jim Trainor in 2008.
