Today in Irish History: Muhammad Ali wins World Title for Third Time. Yup! Irish Ancestry

Welcome to Today in Irish History.

This is a website that provides you with interesting insight and information on what happened on this day in Irish history and people of Irish heritage. To be completely honest, I started this site to sell my book For the Love of Being Irish which is an A-Z of all things Irish. This is a book that contains History, Horror, Humor, Passion, Pathos and Lyrical Limericks that will have you giving thanks (or wishing you were) For the Love of Being Irish

This is a book I am hugely proud of, not least because of the fantastic illustrations done by Mark Anderson.

1978: Muhammad Ali defeated Leon Spinks in the Louisiana Superdome, New Orleans to win the world title for a record third time. The great fighter had Irish origins and visited Ennis, Co. Clare – his ancestral home – in 2009 as you can see in this YouTube clip. Ali twice fought and defeated “Irish” Jerry Quarry in the early 70’s.
