The 100th anniversary of Gaelic Sunday will occur on the 4th August. Gaelic
Sunday was a significant event not just in GAA history but also in Irish
history as a means of protest to the British authorities. Refusing to
consent to RIC permits in order to hold games, the GAA asked every parish
in Ireland to hold games at 3pm on Sunday, 4th August 1918. Over 1,800
games were held with over 50,000 people playing in them at that time. It
led to the RIC backing down.

*To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Gaelic Sunday O’Toole’s will have
historian Cormac Moore give a talk in the Clubhouse on Thursday 26th July
at 8pm sharp. *

*Everyone is welcome to join us for this momentous occasion *
