Gaelic Athletic Association

Redirected from GAA

The Gaelic Athletic Association, or GAA, is an organisation which is mostly focussed on promoting Irish sports, such as hurling, gaelic football, rounders and camogie, though it also promotes Irish music, dance and the Irish language.

The organisation was started in 1884 by Michael Cusack. Under the patronage of Dr. Croke, archbishop of Cashel and Emly, the organisation held it's first meeting in Hayes' Hotel, Thurles, Tipperary.
