GAA Oral History

GAA Oral History Project

The GAA wants to preserve the story of our club and its members. Every club has its own unique stories, personalities and experiences. The GAA Oral History Project wants to make sure that our club’s history is recorded so that future generations will know the contribution that our club and individual members in our locality have made to the GAA. Take this opportunity to be involved in the largest sport’s history project in the world today and  have your story preserved in a new archive at the GAA Museum in Croke Park.

The GAA Oral History Project aims to record the fullest possible picture of what the GAA has meant to the Irish people, in their own words. The project will record face-to-face interviews with thousands of people in Ireland and internationally, including GAA members and supporters, current and former players, managers, officials and administrators, jersey washers, stewards, drivers – anyone who has ever had any involvement with the GAA. This is not just a story about the famous players and famous matches, but about the grassroots who are responsible for keeping the Association alive. This project aims to be a representative survey of attitudes to and experiences of the GAA among Irish people – be they good or bad.

Below you will find a questionnaire which I encourage you to download, complete and return to me. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact myself, Michael Carroll 086-1041165 or email
