Cover of The GAA: County By County

People and place, sport and identity are at the heart of this book, telling the story of how the GAA has left a unique imprint on the Irish county as well as many Irish communities overseas. Organised county by county, the highs and lows of on-field activity are charted and the various forces - social, economic, geographic and political - that have shaped the personality of the GAA across each county are examined.

With a compelling mixture of text, images and first-hand accounts from participants in the GAA Oral History Project, this is a seamless blend of the scholarly and the popular, providing fascinating insights into why the GAA has developed as it has in different places.
