About this product
- DescriptionThis history of Gaelic games and the social world around them has been an outstanding success. From how and where Gaelic games were played and watched to their impact on Irish communities at home and abroad, politics, women in the GAA, music and much more, this history sets the GAA experience against that of a changing Irish society. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and original historical documents, this is a book with absorbing insights into a world that is both uniquely Irish and global.
