Club Archive

Amid the great upheavals of Irish political and social life after the famine and towards the latter years of the 19th century, there came a revival of Gaelic culture, sport, language and traditions. A meeting in Hayes’ Hotel, Thurles on 1st November 1884 gave birth to the one organisation among many that would flourish best, and to the present day the GAA remains one of the great movements of modern Irish history. In the years that followed its foundation, the Gaelic Athletic Association permeated throughout the country with the establishment of clubs, competitions and county structures. The oldest report on record relating to Barryroe GAA Club dates back to 1892 when the newly formed team played in a Timoleague football tournament and this is where our Club Archive commences and continues right up to more recent years. The history of the GAA is intertwined with the history and development of modern Ireland and Barryroe GAA Club are delighted to announce that this information is now available free of charge to all paid up members for 2020.
