GAA President Liam O’Neill will launch the first two volumes of the book ‘A Central Culture – Gaelic Sport in Nenagh’ at the Mac Donagh Park complex on Sunday, December 7th at 4pm.
GAA President Liam O’Neill will launch the first two volumes of the book on Sunday, December 7th while the third volume will be published in 2015.
Volumes one and two cover the first seventy-five years (1884 to 1959).
Researched and written by Donal A Murphy, PJ Maxwell and Nancy Murphy, with Gaelic sport as the focus and Nenagh town and parish at centre stage, this story explores many aspects of social history.
People and place, sport and identity are at the heart of a publication which contains much to fascinate and intrigue a wide audience.
This publication will surely find a resting place in every home in Nenagh and the surrounding area.
It will cater for all Tipperary GAA fans and will also appeal to national sporting enthusiasts and members of local historical societies and family historians.
Along with the physical book a huge amount of digital content associated with the project will be published via the club website.
That digital content will include: photographs, a detailed listing of every player on every team at every level in every code to have played for Nenagh Éire Óg from 1960 onwards, a listing of every match played during that period and a copy of every reference to Nenagh Éire Óg contained in the Nenagh Guardian files.
Volume one of this fantastic and comprehensive study of all branches of Gaelic activity in Nenagh will reveal some notable facts:- 1) that there were thirteen founders of the national GAA on November 1st 1884 (not just seven, as hitherto officially believed) 2) that Nenagh formed the first official hurling club in the country, only four weeks and one day later, initially a branch of the cricket club 3) that Nenagh was first to organise a team bearing the name ‘Tipperary’, not alone in the GAA but in any sport; and among the first to run annual Sports meets under GAA rules.
The book will also include a ground-breaking analysis of the strength of cricket among the ethnic Irish and Irish-Norman of Ormond, prior to 1884 and during the 1890s.
The personalities of most of the Nenagh club’s founders are rounded out in the book – descendants of four appear in the story and are traced through three to six generations down to the present one.
Volume two features a unique oral history of Gaelic sports in Nenagh as told by several veterans, some deceased since the interviews; surprising stories in appendices; Nenagh’s opponents in finals and the profusion of personality profiles.
