#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.

GaelicSportsCast Mix 1

GSC iconDid you miss me?  Yes!  No!  Admit it…You did!

Was out of the country last weekend and on top of that interviews from New Zealand are proving hard to come by, so hence the gaping hole in the normal schedule this week.

Ah, but we have a surprise in store…  the very first GaelicSportsCast Interview Mix featuring clips from Hong Kong, Argentina and Boston put over music.

Mix 1 is the result with a hope of more down the line.  If you would like to hear more of same – and putting a mix together does take time – please let me know?

No intro and out in this piece, just straight into it!

Members of the club at indoor training

As Irish emigrants again spread throughout the world, so once more the games of their forefathers journey with them on their adventure.  Over the freezing Winter, Gaelic Games were recently introduced to Warsaw when a hardy bunch of stalwarts decided their new land of Poland needed a Gaelic Football club and so was born – Cumann Warszawa GAA.
Secretary of the newly born club, Dublin native Colm Murphy, spoke to GaelicSportsCast about the young club.
The young clubs Facebook Page is worthy of a mention for its instinctive understanding of GAA nous –  “Anyone interested in supportin, playin, organisin, makin sandwiches, cuttin oranges, linin pitches, collecting at gates, polishin boots, washin jerseys, fillin water bottles, providing financial backing, dishin abuse or meerly leanin again goalposts talking about us can you please mail me at ‘eoinsheedy@gmail.com’… So as Bono would say ‘Get on Your Boots’!! ” –

Zimbabwe and Singapore joined forces recently at the Gulf Games in Dubai when playing as 'Singbabwe'. They acquitted themsleves vey well in reaching the Shield Semi Final.

Over the past few months, the continent of Africa has been introduced to the world of Gaelic Games as a fledgling Gaelic football team has started up in southern Africa in Harare the capital of the country of Zimbabwe.  English native Paul Carpenter, who converted to Gaelic football five years ago while playing with the Singapore Lions GAA Club, decided the time was ripe to start a club in the region. With just a few weeks to prepare in preparation for the recent Seven’s Gulf Gaelic Games in Dubai, he brought an enthusiastic core group together many of whom took to Gaelic like ‘ducks to water’. Paul spoke to GaelicSportsCast about how it all began.
