Local Voices 011: The story of the Irish bobsleigh team


Ireland's first ever team to qualify for the Winter Olympics was the Irish Bobsleigh Team, at Calgary '88.

But 10 days before they were set to take centre stage, their entry to the games was withdrawn.

Clondalkin filmmaker Jason Branagan charts their spectacular journey in the feature length documentary Breaking Ice.

Jason joins host Hayden Moore alongside Garry Power, two-time Olympic bobsledder with Ireland.
