Muhammad Ali visits Ireland 1972

It’s hard not to like this video of Muhammad Ali gently rambling on about 70’s Ireland

I like the way they shove a shaleighleigh into his hand as soon as he gets off the plane.

One thought on “Muhammad Ali visits Ireland 1972

    This was, apparently, made for American consumption – to promote his fight against Al ‘Blue’ Lewis in Croke Park. But was never broadcast. Speaking of consumption, the “athletes” involved in the “Irish Football” and “Irish hurling” (as opposed to “International hurling”) matches have a sickly 70s pallor that makes me feel brimming with health and vitality.
