About this product
- DescriptionThe decade between the Labour conflict (the 'Lockout') of 1913 and the end of the Civil War in 1923 was one of seismic upheaval. How the GAA - a major sporting and national body - both influenced and was influenced by this upheaval is a rich and multifaceted story. Leading writers in the field of modern Irish history and the history of sport explore the impact on ordinary life of major events. They examine the effect of the First World War, the 1916 Rising and its aftermath, the emergence of nationalist Sinn Fein and its triumph over the Irish Parliamentary Party, as well as the War of Independence (1919-21) and the bitter Civil War (1922-23). This is an original and engrossing perspective through the lens of a sporting organisation.Contributors: Eoghan Corry, Mike Cronin, Paul Darby, Paraic Duffy, Diarmaid Ferriter, Donal McAnallen, James McConnel, Richard McElligott, Cormac Moore, Sean Moran, Ross O Carroll, Gearoid O Tuathaigh, Mark Reylds and Paul Rouse.
