Following the reveal of HARP’s Top Three ‘Living Legends: Giants of NI Sport’, HARP has launched its Ode to the Living Legends, captured in a video with a little help from former Featherweight World Champion, Barry McGuigan
Boxing icon Barry McGuigan channelled his inner ‘LaMotta’ as he geared up to take part in the HARP Living Legends: Giants of NI Sport debate. McGuigan was joined by Jackie Fullerton (voice of NI football), Adrian Logan (former UTV sports editor) and Graham Little (Sky Sports) in The HARP Bar, Belfast, to pick the Top 3 Living Legends: Giants of NI Sport from a longlist of 24. After much debate – and a lot of mickey-taking – the panel eventually agreed on a Top 3 of AP McCoy, Rory McIlroy and Pat Jennings.
The launch comes at a time when the eyes of the sporting world will be on Belfast with BBC’s Sports Personality Of The Year taking place in Belfast this month.
