When boxer Michael Carruth won the welterweight gold medal at Barcelona in 1992 he became the first Irish competitor to become Olympic champion since Ron Delany had won the 1500 metres at Melbourne in 1956. To celebrate the occasion, and mark Carruth's return home, pubs in Dublin decided to drop the price of Guinness to what it had cost in 1956, So, all over Ireland's capital that day, drinkers were raising a pint that cost 4p to Carruth.
