People and place, sport and identity are at the heart of this book, telling the story of how the GAA has left a unique imprint on every Irish county and Irish communities overseas. Organised county by county, the highs and lows of on-field activity are charted and the various forces that have shaped the personality of the GAA across each county - social, economic, geographic and political - are examined. With a compelling mix of text, images and first-hand accounts from participants in the GAA Oral History project, this is a seamless blend of the scholarly and the popular, providing fascinating insights into why the GAA has developed as it has in different places. The second major publication after The GAA - A People's History from the team behind the GAA Oral History Project, this is a book to treasure and keep.
