Telling GAA Stories through Objects

In popular imagination and experience, the GAA is often evoked through objects: medals passed down from generation to generation, jerseys worn in All-Ireland finals, Cúl Camps backpacks. This talk explores fascinating objects and their stories, that were uncovered by Siobhán Doyle when researching and writing her book ‘A History of the GAA in 100 Objects’.
