From the rear side cover: In this ground breaking book, Joseph Bradley focuses on aspects of the story of the Irish in Scotland as seen through a number of cultural, social and political strands.
By surveying the history of the Gaelic Athletic Association in Scotland and situating it within the larger story of Irish immigration, Bradley adds to our knowledge and understanding of this community; a community that comprises Scotland's greatest single group of immigrant descent; a community that in the new millennium partly reflects Scotland's status as a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society
The G.A.A. is the biggest and most significant cultural and sporting organisation in Ireland, and it has also been important wherever the Irish have settled . It has thus been present in Scotland since the Irish in Glasgow founded the Red Hugh O'Neill Gaelic Athletic Club in 1897, and this book is a must read for anyone interested in this fascinating subject.....
