The Gaelic Athletic Association 1884 2009

by Mike Cronin, release date 2009, The Gaelic Athletic Association 1884 2009 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Gaelic Athletic Association 1884 2009 books, This book, which in May 2010 won the North American Society for Sports History (NASSH) award for the best edited volume published in 2009, brings together some of the leading writers in the area of Irish history to assess the importance of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) in Irish society since its founding in 1884 and it is the first key book to center on the GAA and Irish history. While there has been much written about the GAA, the bulk of work has concentrated on the sporting aspects of the Association - the great games and famous players - rather than the role that the GAA has played in wider Irish history. The chapters cover a large chronological span dating back to the origins of hurling, through the foundation of the GAA, its role in the political life of the nation and ending with an assessment of some of the main issues facing the GAA into the twenty-first century. Importantly, the book also offers original and insightful work on areas including the class make up of the GAA, the centrality of Amateurism in the Association, the role of the Irish language, and the ways in which films have featured Gaelic games.

Masculinity And Power In Irish Nationalism 1884 1938

by Aidan Beatty, release date 2016-09-23, Masculinity And Power In Irish Nationalism 1884 1938 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Masculinity And Power In Irish Nationalism 1884 1938 books, This book is a comparative study of masculinity and white racial identity in Irish nationalism and Zionism. It analyses how both national movements sought to refute widespread anti-Irish or anti-Jewish stereotypes and create more prideful (and highly gendered) images of their respective nations. Drawing on English-, Irish-, and Hebrew-language archival sources, Aidan Beatty traces how male Irish nationalists sought to remake themselves as a proudly Gaelic-speaking race, rooted both in their national past as well as in the spaces and agricultural soil of Ireland. On the one hand, this was an attempt to refute contemporary British colonial notions that they were somehow a racially inferior or uncomfortably hybridised people. But this is also presented in the light of the general history of European nationalism; nationalist movements across Europe often crafted romanticised images of the nation’s past and Irish nationalism was thus simultaneously European and postcolonial. It is this that makes Irish nationalism similar to Zionism, a movement that sought to create a more idealized image of the Jewish past that would disprove contemporary anti-Semitic stereotypes.

A Social And Cultural History Of Sport In Ireland

by David Hassan, release date 2018-02-02, A Social And Cultural History Of Sport In Ireland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Social And Cultural History Of Sport In Ireland books, Sport has played a central role in modern Ireland’s history. Perhaps nowhere else has sport so infused the political, social and cultural development and identity of a nation. During this so-called ‘Decade of Centenaries’ in Ireland (2014 to 2024) recently there has been an exponential growth in interest and academic research on Ireland’s sporting heritage. This collection of chapters, contributed by some of Ireland’s most preeminent sport and social historians, showcases the richness and complexity of Ireland’s sporting legacy. Articles on topics as diverse as the role of native Gaelic games in emphasising the emerging cultural nationalism of pre-Revolutionary Ireland, the contribution of Irish rugby to the broader British war effort in World War 1, the emergence of Irish soccer on the international stage, and the long running battle to gain official recognition within international athletics for an independent Irish state, are presented. This work’s intention is to illustrate some of the latest and most vibrant research being conducted on Irish sports history. This book was published as a special issue of Sport in Society.

How Football Began

by Tony Collins, release date 2018-08-06, How Football Began Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download How Football Began books, This ambitious and fascinating history considers why, in the space of sixty years between 1850 and 1910, football grew from a marginal and unorganised activity to become the dominant winter entertainment for millions of people around the world. The book explores how the world’s football codes - soccer, rugby league, rugby union, American, Australian, Canadian and Gaelic - developed as part of the commercialised leisure industry in the nineteenth century. Football, however and wherever it was played, was a product of the second industrial revolution, the rise of the mass media, and the spirit of the age of the masses. Important reading for students of sports studies, history, sociology, development and management, this book is also a valuable resource for scholars and academics involved in the study of football in all its forms, as well as an engrossing read for anyone interested in the early history of football.

Hell For Leather

by Ronnie Bellew, release date 2014-11-06, Hell For Leather Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hell For Leather books, Hurling's appeal has never been stronger. Redefined in the past decade by a great Kilkenny team, rejuvenated by Clare's 2013 All-Ireland coup and re-energised by Dublin's grassroots' revolution, the game exerts an obsessive grip on players and followers alike. The achievements of modern teams and players are constantly weighed against those of old, and Hell for Leather chronicles hurling's evolution from the fragile beginnings of the 1880s through to the current era. It takes a new look at the epic teams that saw Tipperary, Cork and Kilkenny become 'the big three', and also traces the emergence of Wexford, Limerick, Laois, Clare, Dublin, Galway, Waterford and Offaly as contenders. It highlights the matches that made legends of the great players and analyses how the swashbuckling hurling of old has given way into a tactically nuanced game that commands global respect for its showpiece occasions. Hell for Leather is an unforgettable journey to the heart of a sport that, at its finest, can truly claim to be the greatest game on the planet.

Sport In Capitalist Society

by Tony Collins, release date 2013-04-12, Sport In Capitalist Society Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sport In Capitalist Society books, Why are the Olympic Games the driving force behind a clampdown on civil liberties? What makes sport an unwavering ally of nationalism and militarism? Is sport the new opiate of the masses? These and many other questions are answered in this new radical history of sport by leading historian of sport and society, Professor Tony Collins. Tracing the history of modern sport from its origins in the burgeoning capitalist economy of mid-eighteenth century England to the globalised corporate sport of today, the book argues that, far from the purity of sport being ‘corrupted’ by capitalism, modern sport is as much a product of capitalism as the factory, the stock exchange and the unemployment line. Based on original sources, the book explains how sport has been shaped and moulded by the major political and economic events of the past two centuries, such as the French Revolution, the rise of modern nationalism and imperialism, the Russian Revolution, the Cold War and the imposition of the neo-liberal agenda in the last decades of the twentieth century. It highlights the symbiotic relationship between the media and sport, from the simultaneous emergence of print capitalism and modern sport in Georgian England to the rise of Murdoch’s global satellite television empire in the twenty-first century, and for the first time it explores the alternative, revolutionary models of sport in the early twentieth century. Sport in a Capitalist Society is the first sustained attempt to explain the emergence of modern sport around the world as an integral part of the globalisation of capitalism. It is essential reading for anybody with an interest in the history or sociology of sport, or the social and cultural history of the modern world.

Gaelic Games Nationalism And The Irish Diaspora In The United States

by Paul Darby, release date 2009, Gaelic Games Nationalism And The Irish Diaspora In The United States Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gaelic Games Nationalism And The Irish Diaspora In The United States books, Full many years,'neath foreign skies, A stranger have I strayed, I've mingled in their sportive joys, And heard their music played; But still the dearest spot on earth - Which links me to its scene - For cheerful, hearty, guileless mirth, Is an Irish hurling-green. (The Gael, May 1887:705) Gaelic sports, played for over a century in the United States, provide a revealing window into the lives and culture of Irish communities there. It is well documented that Irish politicians, the Catholic Church and a whole host of social, political and benevolent organisations helped Irish immigrants acclimatise to and establish themselves in urban America. Far less has been said about the role of sport, let alone Gaelic games, in this process. Gaelic Games, Nationalism and the Irish Diaspora in the United States redresses this neglect by uncovering the origins and development of US branches of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and by accounting for their political, economic and social impact in Irish America. Paul Darby takes as case studies the cities of New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco, focal points of Irish Immigration and the main centres of GAA activity in America. He draws on detailed archival and ethnographic research carried out in each city and uses a selection of rare photographs to bring to life a remarkable story of cultural preservation, persistence and passion for Gaelic games.
