Ireland without the GAA is unimaginable. As the Association celebrates its 125th anniversary, The GAA: A Peoples History tells the story of how it has carved for itself a unique place at the heart of Irish life. Commissioned by the GAA, this is a peoples history. It outlines how Gaelic games and the social world which revolves around the Association, has shaped the lives of generations of Irish people at home and abroad. From parades and ballads to epic journeys across land and sea, this history of the GAA is as much about what happened off the field as what happened on it.
The GAA – A Peoples History by Mike Cronin, Mark Duncan and Paul Rouse is published by The Collins Press, price €29.99. It is available in all good bookshops and online from www.collinspress.ie
