On Easter Sunday, the GAA held its annual congress in Dublin.

Among those present were Austin Stack, chairman of the Kerry GAA and Harry Boland, chairman of the Dublin GAA and leading figure in the IRB, who would fight in the GPO.

On returning to his home town of Kilkenny the next evening, the GAA’s president, James Nowlan, was arrested for his membership of the Sinn Féin movement the authorities now believed was rebelling against them.

In all, 302 GAA members from 52 separate Dublin GAA clubs numbered among the 1,500 rebels who fought in the Easter Rebellion in Dublin.

Next Sunday at Croke Park the GAA will commemorate its role in 1916 after the National League Football finals with LAOCHRA – A Grand Citizens Parade.
