Wexford Woman Publishes Book On The History Of The GAA – But Through A Unique Angle

A Wexford woman has published a book that deals with the history of the Gaelic Athletic Association…

Wexford woman Siobhán Doyle published a book entitled ‘A history of the GAA in 100 objects’ earlier this year in October 2022.

The book tells the stories of the GAA through a new angle; she writers accounts from various different historical objects associated with the organisation.

Doyle, who works as a Curatorial Researcher at the National Museum and has worked at the GAA’s Museum in Croke Park, said that the GAA has always been present throughout her life.

“From flying the Wexford flag in the garden at home to giving guided tours in Croke Park, the GAA has had a strong presence in my life. It has been an immense privilege to write it’s history in a new way,” she said.

As per an review of the book on GAA.ie, “the book has been shortlisted for awards and received widespread and richly deserved praise.”

The book can be purchased online at Easons, or at any major bookshops. The online price on Easons is EUR 19.99 and it could be the ideal Christmas present for that GAA fanatic in your life.
