#30 – Brilliant new book a tour de force on Gaelic sports in America – Part 1

paul-darby-bookNorthern Ireland academic,  author and former Antrim footballer, Paul Darby who is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Sports Studies at the University of Ulster in Belfast, has written a brilliantly researched work and insightful account of the history of Gaelic Games in America entitled, “Gaelic Games, Nationalism and the Irish Diaspora in the United States”.  By detailing the importance of Gaelic Games for Irish emigrants, the work fills an enormous void in the historical documentation of  emigrant life in the US and is required reading for every GAA enthusiast in America.  GaelicSportsCast spoke to Mr Darby about his new book in this first of a two part episode.
