This is a project about the Gaelic Athletic Association: our games, our people, our history, our place in Irish life.


Do you have an interest in history? Are you part of a voluntary organisation or club that is interested in local history? Are you a member of a GAA club who would like to help us tell your story? Are you a student who would like a wide variety of work experience? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then the GAA Oral History Project is looking for you!

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. In order to achieve this aim, the Project will depend on the participation of volunteers and student interns to gather contributions, document information, and generate interest in the Project in their locality.

Volunteers can participate in the Project in the following ways:

  • Carrying out recorded interviews
  • Distributing questionnaires
  • Locating historical materials relevant to the Project
  • Carrying out archive and library research
  • Assisting in administrative work and cataloguing
  • Creating awareness of the Project in their locality
