The GAA Oral History Project

The GAA History Project is a record of interviews with hundreds of people, including GAA members and supporters, current and former players, managers, officials and administrators. The interviews, which formed part of the GAA’s 125th anniversary celebrations, record personal experiences of the GAA, e.g. earliest memories, playing matches, travelling to matches, watching matches, supporting teams (club and county), club life, changes in the game, involvement at club and county level, the GAA abroad, Scór, the Irish language, politics, religion etc.

Regina holds a BA in History and Irish from UCD and an MA in Cultural Policy and Arts Management, also from UCD and is currently undertaking doctoral studies at De Montfort University, Leicester.
