Merrion Press 🔖is on the cusp of publishing a new book by Humphrey Kelleher.

COMING SOON

A PLACE TO PLAY
The people and stories behind 101 GAA grounds
Humphrey Kelleher



A beautifully designed photographic celebration of GAA grounds in all 32 counties and beyond, featuring all-new drone photography and wide-ranging and hugely entertaining facts, figures and quirky stories about each location.

In every province and county in Ireland, GAA grounds are cornerstones of culture and community. They are imbued with history and their terraces echo with the sounds of decades, even centuries, of spirited sporting battles.

In this book, the first of its kind, Humphrey Kelleher has created a vibrant record of 101 GAA county grounds in every corner of the country.

Each GAA ground featured has served as a county ground at some stage in its lifetime. Named for saints, landowners, political figures and more, every one has a unique and absorbing history. Alongside this fascinating information, the author chronicles the development of the grounds over the years, and the often surprising ways that funds were raised to do so.

All thirty-two counties feature, and it doesn’t stop there; the book also takes us to London and to New York, where the grounds reflect the lasting and far-reaching influence of the GAA beyond these borders.

With stunning new aerial drone photography by the author, this exceptional book offers an insightful new perspective on the places our GAA clubs and counties call home.
