Irish skateboarding throwback gallery for St Patrick’s Day

Irish skateboarding documented over the last two decades - Happy St Patrick's Day!

Sidewalk must be the only skateboard magazine in history to have been dissed (some years ago now) for “having too much Irish coverage”: back in the mid 00’s we seemed to be over there quite often as the scene was full of amazing skaters, events were plentiful and any trip over the water guaranteed a good time.

With this in mind, and in honour of today being St Patrick’s Day, we figured we’d delve into the archives for a taste of some of the Irish skateboarding we’ve documented and/or published over the years.
This is by no means exhaustive, but contains a good mix of OGs, and more recent heads, in and around Ireland. Worth it for baby Denis Lynn alone.
Now go get a pint of Guinness!
