Last week, as part of its MyHealth series, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland had a public lecture entitled Knocking Out Concussion - with one very special guest.
Dr Bennet Omalu hails from the United States, and his life and medical research inspired the movie Concussion, which starred Will Smith.
Following the lecture, medical representatives from the FAI, the GAA and the IRFU joined a discussion panel which also included Aisling Daly (retired professional mixed martial arts fighter and founder of Safe MMA Ireland) and Bernard Jackman, the former Irish international rugby player.
