Tell us your greatest GAA stories


A major drive is being launched to source and publish for the first time GAA stories from the grassroots of the Association.

The collaboration between the Association and publishers, Ballpoint Press Ltd., aims to gather the most comprehensive treasure trove of Gaelic-related stories ever compiled in the 136-year history of the GAA.

As well as the four corners of Ireland, stories will also be sought from across the globe, in particular from those who have been GAA frontier people in the USA, UK, Canada, Australia and many other countries.

The story gathering will include oral accounts so that all kind of stories can be written down for the first time in book form and also feature in the GAAs archives at Croke Park.

Potential contributors who feel they have a story but may not feel up to writing it can get in touch with Ballpoint Press and relate their account. It will then be written and sent back for approval before being submitted for final publishing.

This project and the resulting publication will complement the work undertaken by the GAAs Oral History Project, which was commissioned in 2009 as part of the Associations 125 celebrations.

The President of the GAA, John Horan, said he welcomed the exploration through the GAA grassroots to find the diversity of stories that undoubtedly exist there.

The grassroots is the lifeblood of our organisation and it is timely that that such an undertaking is finally going ahead. Im delighted because it means that there will be a permanent home for these stories in both book form as well in our own GAA archive section.

Well-know journalist and author, PJ Cunningham, will spearhead the undertaking alongside GAA Communications Director, Alan Milton.

Mr Cunningham said it had been an ambition of his for many years to bring what he believes is the great legacy of GAA stories together under one roof.

GAA is a way of life for most Irish people at home and abroad. It is packed with diverse stories from on and off the pitch. I grew up listening to them and enjoying their re-telling but the reality is that many of these stories exist only in word of mouth form.

At present we all have a bit more time to commit such stories to paper so that they can be preserved for future generations.

We are looking for ordinary stories from the grassroots with twists and turns rather than plain historical accounts about clubs themselves or ancestors who just wonmedals or became famous.

"Thisis not a collection of how clubs were founded or run but about the people in them. Each club has written its own history - this collection is seeking the yarns and the exploits of its members on and off the field from times past right up to the present, Cunningham explained.
