Tir na nOg 1919-2019-An Illustrated History

Tir na nOg GAC Randalstown celebrated their Centenary in 2019 and to mark the occasion the club published an excellent illustrated history of the event. Historian, Dr. Eamon Pheonix was special guest at the launch back at the end of October and he spoke eloquently about the histoy and the events contained in this excellent publication.

Tir na nOg-An Illustrated History is still available and is a must read for members and former members of the Randalstown club and indeed followers of the GAA in Antrim and further afield and can still be obtained by contacting committee members of the club.

The Saffron Gael were present at the launch of the History and attended the club’s Centenary dinner and below we have published a Tir na nOg role of honour of the people who founded the club and those who were at its heart through its first century. We have also carried photographs of the Tir na nOg teams who represented the club at various times throughout that history.
