Ó Maoláin Scrapbook – a treasure trove of gaelic games achievement

people_omaoilean_proinsiasSome time ago, Cartlann Digiteach Cuala reported it had struck gold – having just acquired access to a unique Scrapbook documenting hurling & football in Dalkey. It contained material associated Harold Boys N.S. Dalkey and Dalkey Mitchells GAA Club – two institutions that occupy a unique position in the Cuala story.

The Album, compiled by legendary Harold Dalkey schoolmaster Proinsias Ó Maoláin, covers a period from the 1950’s to the 1970’s.  It contains a wide range of handwritten notes, photographs, newspaper cuttings, songs and poems – all penned by the author or his pupils. Overall, it paints a vivid picture of how Gaelic Games were organised in and around Dalkey during the period.

We have already published many articles based on this fascinating album and we are now releasing the full album for your enjoyment.
