The GAA Library & Archive holds the official records of the Gaelic Athletic Association and contains a wide-range of primary and secondary source material which document the rich history of the GAA and the contribution made by key GAA personalities and the Association to the social, political and cultural life of Ireland.


Much of this material is relevant to the history curriculum, including:

  • GAA minute books and convention reports dating back to the late 19th Century
  • A number of personal GAA archive collections
  • The eyewitness reports from Croke Park for Bloody Sunday, 21st November 1920
  • A large collection of GAA books, magazines and articles. 

The GAA Library & Archive is an invaluable resource for secondary school students conducting a research study in an area relating to GAA history.
