Abstract

The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) was founded in 1884 at a time when many factions of Irish society were actively resistant to British rule. The foundation of the GAA was part of a wider "nationwide campaign to resurrect the physical stature of the manhood of Ireland, which was deemed debilitated because of the combined effects of British rule and the Great Famine".
