SOUTH KILKENNY Historical Society's next lecture, taking place this Thursday, January 31, concerns the GAA Oral History Project.
Regina Fitzpatrick, a native of Galmoy, Co. Kilkenny and a consultant oral historian who has worked as a full-time oral historian on the GAA Oral History Project (2008-2012) will deliver this lecture at 8 p.m. in Mullinavat Parish Hall (opposite the Church)
The GAA History Project is a record of interviews with hundreds of people, including GAA members and supporters, current and former players, managers, officials and administrators
The interviews, which formed part of the GAA's 125th anniversary celebrations, record personal experiences of the GAA, such as earliest memories, playing matches, travelling to matches, watching matches, supporting teams (club and county), club life, changes in the game, involvement at club and county level, the GAA abroad, Scór, the Irish language, politics and religion.
Admission for members is free and €5 for non members.
