GAA to celebrate 125th anniversary

The GAA has announced the launch of a calendar of events which will take place during 2009 to celebrate the founding of the the Association on November 1, 1884.

The formal launch of the 125th anniversary celebrations will be held at Croke Park with the start of the Allianz GAA Football National League.

The clash of Dublin and Tyrone under lights promises to be an exciting match and the event will include music, entertainment and a lighting and fireworks extravaganza.

Events will be held right across the country throughout the year.

Among the key events are a Special Schools Day, a Late, Late show screening devoted to the GAA, a special St Patrick’s Festival Parade in Dublin and a bumper Club Day on May 10 when over 2,000 clubs will be invited to celebrate the Anniversary in style.
