The GAA Oral History Project was commissioned by the GAA as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations in 2009. The aim of the project was to record, collect and preserve the memories, stories and opinions of the people involved in the GAA.
Under the direction of Boston College, 790 interviews were conducted with approximately 1,300 GAA fans, players and administrators between 2009 and 2012. The information collected in these interviews is presented here for current and future generations to listen to. Through these interviews, listeners can get an understanding of what the GAA means to people and its place in Irish society.
For ease of access the interviews have been divided by area and by topic. Users can use the two sections below to find their desired interview and then using the player at the top of each interview page. The Interview Report Form is also provided to act as a guide for each interview.
