The 140 stories in this second volume are a treasure trove of memories, tales and incidents spanning over 150 years.
With accounts dating from before the foundation of the GAA through to the Civil War and up to modern times, the collection reflects the emergence of Irish nationhood in all its guises, from within the country’s biggest and most widespread sporting organisation.
The collaboration between the GAA and journalist and author PJ Cunningham elicited an unprecedented response within every county and from the Irish abroad in the USA, UK, Australia and many other countries.
The strength of the collection is the depth and variety of stories from ordinary GAA members recalling happy or sad, dramatic or ordinary occurrences in their day-to-day existence.
