There is life after Rule 21

Since its foundation in 1884 as part of the Gaelic Revival, the Gaelic Athletic Association has been a positive and enriching force in Irish society. Generations of our young people have benefited from this unique amateur organisation. The GAA has developed character and athleticism and has fostered teamwork and camaraderie and instilled a sense of pride in Irish culture and identity. The GAA helps bind parishes, communities and counties. Its value to Irish society can be seen outside Croke Park and at grounds across the country every Sunday from May to September in the teeming masses, young and old, who gather to engage in good-humoured rivalry and cheer on their respective counties.
