This talk examines the complexities, contradictions and compromises of how people behave in time of war.
It will look at the choices and actions of individuals when identity and political allegiances are manifest in sport.
It will assess the importance of the Gaelic Atheltic Association in the making of a revolution and the conflict between those who played GAA and those who played so-called ‘foreign games’.
It will also consider the importance of those people for whom sport was a thing of pleasure, and not of politics.
