There will be a short get together in the clubhouse this Friday night 16th Dec 2011 at 8pm concerning the GAA Oral History Project. This is a project that has been commissioned by the GAA. The Project aims to record the fullest possible picture of what the GAA has meant to the Irish people, in their own words. The Project will record face-to-face interviews with thousands of people in Ireland and internationally, including GAA members and supporters, and anyone who has ever had any contact or involvement with the GAA. In addition to recording interviews, and in order to reach the largest number of people possible, the GAA Oral History Project is also providing questionnaires for people to fill out. Alternatively, people can simply send the Project a letter or email about the place of the GAA in their lives. For further details visit All interested people are asked to attend this meeting.
