A History of the GAA in 100 Objects – Siobhán Doyle

September 26, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Gaelic Athletic Association is often evoked in terms of its objects: medals passed down from generation to generation, jerseys worn in All-Ireland finals, Michael Cusack’s blackthorn stick, a pair of glasses damaged during the events of Bloody Sunday.

A History of the GAA in 100 Objects is a fascinating book that offers a new perspective on the GAA by assembling a range of objects from every county in Ireland, as well as overseas.

From a fifteenth-century horsehair sliotar to a tweed camogie dress, Trevor Giles’s sleeveless jersey and Brian Cody’s baseball cap, all corners of the GAA world are explored and celebrated.

Siobhán Doyle is a historian and works as a curator in the National Museum of Ireland.
