At Kanturk (Co. Cork) Sports on 6th September 1908, the principal performance of the day was that of Denis Horgan in putting the 16 lb. shot, in which he covered a distance of 50 ft. 5 ins. It should be mentioned that Horgan's previous record put of 48 ft. 2 in. has stood for some ten years until it was smashed by Ralph Rose (California) at 49 ft. 7 in. Sunday's performance is a world's record.
He has several seconds in the hammer and as to his wins all over Ireland, English, and Scotland, it is simply impossible to find space for them all.
