Not sure if there's much (or any!) interest in these, but I've a modest collection of GAA programmes for Ireland's semi-official national game hurling and the bastardised soccer-rugby hybrid Gaelic football!

Anyway, let's start with an old football final from 1955. Two traditional powerhouses Dublin v Kerry and a healthy crowd of just over 80,000 at Croke Park. Kerry won what is now regarded as a classic by 0-12 (no goals, 12 points) to 1-6 (1 goal and 6 points = 9 points). Neo-traditional Irish script and the Irish language is used on the cover but most of the content is (pragmatically) in English.
As usual on All-Ireland final day the curtain-raiser was the Minor (under-18.) final, between Dublin and Tipperary.

1975 All Ireland Hurling final. Kilkenny beat Galway 2-22 to 2-10 for a third title in 4 years and their 20th overall. 64,000 in attendance.

Back for a very occasional updated. Here's the programme and a "rare as hen's teeth" pirate from the famous 1960 All Ireland football final between Down and Kerry.

A particularly historic one as Down became the first team to take the trophy north of the border.

I think the attendance of near 88,000 was and is a record.

The formidable looking Archbishop Croke, after whom Croke Park is named, features on the cover of the official programme.
