The Fulbright Ireland crew at Croke Park for our farewell field trip.

The Fulbright Ireland crew at Croke Park for our farewell field trip.

We stared our Fulbright grand finale day with a tour of Croke Park stadium and a visit to the GAA museum there.  As I noted yesterday, this is one of the world’s largest stadiums for amateur sports.  The stadium website explains:

Croke Park has been at the heart of Irish sporting life for over a hundred years. Boasting a capacity for 82,300 people, the stadium is the home of Gaelic games and the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).

The museum website explains:

The GAA Museum, as the national custodian of all the archives and artefacts of the Gaelic Athletic Association, is dedicated to promoting an appreciation of the values, culture and history of Gaelic games.
