Oral History

Liam Lenihan

Liam Lenihan talks about growing up in Limerick, close to the border with Kerry. Football was everything to them and they loved to play games and listen to commentaries on the radio. He played with his local club Mountcollins and went to carnivals that were held where he got to see some of the best footballers of the day in action. He later went to train as a teacher in Dublin and got to see a lot of GAA games live, and he became involved in administrative work. He returned to Limerick to work as a teacher and his GAA involvement continued. He filled all sorts of administrative positions, coached teams, acted as a Limerick selector and was an integral part of a campaign to revive interest in hurling amongst the young people of Limerick. For Liam the Association is an integral part of his life, and it binds communities together across the country and beyond.
