The GAA Museum – Celebrating 125 years of GAA History
This month the GAA Museum, in conjunction with Seachtain na Gaeilge, launches the first of its Legends Tours with a special Irish tour of Croke Park with Kerry footballing legend Dara O Cinnéide. Keeping with this Irish theme the GAA Museum is also staging two FREE Irish tours of the stadium in conjunction with Gaelspraoi while later in the month a special evening lecture by Dr. Aidan O’Sullivan will look at the ancient origins of hurling.
GAA Museum Memory Wall
The GAA Museum 125 Memory Wall is currently up and running. If you would like to share your special GAA memory please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure that it gets onto the 125 Memory Wall.
From April onwards one memory will be picked each month to feature on the GAA Museum website and newsletter!

Club and County
Each year GAA fans all over the country support their county in a bid to be crowned All-Ireland Football or Hurling champions. But did you know that the first ever All-Ireland finals back in 1887 were actually played by clubs representing different counties? In the first All-Ireland Football Final, played at Clonskeagh in Co. Dublin, a Limerick club called ‘Limerick Commercials’ defeated a Louth club called ‘Young Ireland’ by 1-04 to 0-03. The first All-Ireland Hurling Final was played at Birr in Co.Offaly when a Tipperary club from Thurles defeated a Galway club called ‘Meelick’ by 1-01 to 0-00.
