Secondary School Teachers Resource Pack
The GAA Museum has produced a secondary school teachers resource pack entitled The Gaelic Athletic Association through History and Documents 1870-1920. The pack aims to provide a teaching aid which can be used to prepare second level students in advance of a visit to the GAA Museum and participation in a stadium tour.
The pack contains historical fact sheets, a selection of facsimile GAA documents as well as document analysis activity sheets. Fact sheets and documents cover historical GAA personalities, topics and events such as Michael Cusack, Maurice Davin, Archbishop Croke, the GAA and the IRB, Gaelic Sunday 1919, Bloody Sunday 1920 and the History of Croke Park.
