17th July 2016 – Gaelic Sunday Commeratiton

In 1918 it was illegal for groups to gather, even in small crowds, and Cumann Lúthchleas Gael was required to obtain a permit for all games.

The GAA and Camogie Association refused to apply for permits and as a protest at the time, they organised matches throughout the country on a day that became known as Gaelic Sunday.

To commemorate these momentous events, 17th July 2016 has been designated in Co. Antrim as a date to allow clubs to arrange 1916 themed events within their club. 

These could take the form of an exhibition, film, games, Irish language event pageant, play, themed Quiz, re-enactment etc.

We would encourage all clubs to send details of their events to the Co. Antrim GAA 1916 Committeejamesgaston60@gmail.com  07846335423

Please not that this is not a closed date any all events must be scheduled around  All County Fixtures fixed for that date.
