Finally it happens! After a year’s delay due to the  Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has become the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games! And all of us here at are ready to cheer on Team Ireland at the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games.

The Opening Ceremony takes place on Friday the 23 July 2021 at 12 noon Irish time. Boxers Kellie Harrington and Brendan Irvine will carry the Irish flag for Team Ireland in the athlete’s parade at the Opening Ceremony.

Team Ireland action begins on Friday 23rd July 2021, when the rowers take up their oars just ahead of the Opening Ceremony.

The Tokyo Olympic Games runs from Friday 23 July – Sunday 8 August.

Ahead of the event we thought we’d present Team Ireland to you so you can get behind them over the next month and cheer them on… and hopefully we can bring a few medals home!

Best of luck to all of them:
