August 4, 1918 will be remembered as one of the most remarkable and significant days in the history of the GAA. Known as Gaelic Sunday – it was a day when the clubs of the GAA stood against the British Empire and triumphed in a peaceful protest through the playing of Hurling, Gaelic Football and Camogie.
On the weekend of August 4th and 5th 2018 the GAA is appealing to clubs to hold their own club activity as part of commemorating that historic event. The GAA is not being prescriptive as to the nature of a club’s commemorative event. It could be an internal club tournament, a challenge game (perhaps against the same opponents as in 1918), a family day or a club history exhibition.
Gaelic Sunday has never received the same publicity as Bloody Sunday which took place two years later. Yet, it is an important occasion in the history of the GAA and indeed in the history of this country.
A goal before half time and five unanswered points at the start of the second half has put the Kilkenny minors into an All-Ireland semi-final against Tipperary next Sunday in Croke Park at 1.30pm. The first half saw both teams trade points in what was a very even affair until the 24th minute when Kilkenny opened up a three point lead followed by a goal on the cusp of half time to go in six points ahead at the break. Kilkenny's performance in the second half went up a few gears and a strong showing, outscoring Limerick 2-11 to 1-4 in the second half ensured a Croke Park outing next weekend. The final score Kilkenny 3-22 Limerick 1-12.
