Uibh Fhailí: The Faithful County 1884-1984 – Eds. P.J. Cunningham & R. Scully.
Out of stock
The games of hurling and football were played in Offaly down the centuries. In small towns and parishes men, women and children gathered on Sundays and long summer evenings to participate in what was to be called ‘’the national pastime’’ of our country.
When the GAA was founded in 1884, Offaly was represented at the meetings by Mr. P.J. White, Clara. It is also part of history that the first All-Ireland Hurling final between Thurles, Tipperary and Meelick, Galway was played at Birr Gaelic Grounds on Easter Sunday, April 1st 1888.
This Official Centenary Publication of the Offaly County Board contains the histories, achievements, results, pictures, stories and even songs relating to both club and county teams from the years 1884 – 1984.
This first edition, rare and second hand book is out of print but is in excellent condition. A must for any Offaly GAA aficionado.
