OFFICIAL GAA MERCHANDISE

OFFICIAL GAA MERCHANDISE

What is the GAA? Few topics so stir the Irish spirit, few pursuits so excite and define the Irish race as our native games, the traditional sports of hurling, handball and most particularly, gaelic football. The organization which promotes and administers Ireland’s beloved sports is the GAA, or Gaelic Athletic Association.

The sports are still our pride and passion, the parent body firmly rooted in our national psyche. We still relish every drop of drama and controversy afforded by post-mortems of our beloved games; fair to say that only the climate rivals GAA pursuits as a favorite topic of conversation.

Headquartered in Dublin’s Croke Park, this dynamic organization has evolved, since it’s origins in the 1880’s, into as powerful a symbol of the Irish essence as our music or our martyrs. Founded in Thurles, Co. Tipperary, its mission also focuses on the native Irish language, Gaelic, and Irish culture in general. Historical context has much to do with the national sports obsession ; in the 1880’s, pre-independent Ireland was resisting centuries of British dominion, and fighting to defend and nurture our national games was a crucial part of forging our national identity. Thus, the GAA was born out of a hunger for self-determination; above and beyond mere sporting entertainment, it embodied our Irishness.

Recognizing just how close to Ireland’s pulse is the GAA, the James Trading Group is honored and thrilled to be appointed the first U.S.- based manufacturer/distributor of merchandise bearing the GAA logo. January 2013 will see the launch of an exciting new sports clothing range - hooded sweatshirts, performance T’s and other fashion-forward leisure garments - whose easy, edgy styling and distinctive GAA logo will appeal to customers seeking to wear their Irish-ness in an attractive, comfortable and singularly authentic way. The garments will feature tasteful hangtags which tell the story of the GAA, and which highlight that a portion of each purchase goes to the GAA community in Ireland. Point of sale and promotional tools to support and supplement this much-anticipated product launch will include tasteful hangtags which tell the GAA story, and which highlight that a portion of each purchase is donated back to the GAA, enabling local clubs throughout Ireland to benefit in a very real way. While the emphasis will be on premium fabrics and active-lifestyle designs, but the distinctiveness of this line lies in the GAA logo as the epitome of Irish pride. Be part of the GAA’s next, international , chapter. Offer your Irish-born, Irish-American and Irish-at-heart customers the perfect clothing range to reflect GAA pride – Irish, heart and soul.

Over time – and to this day – the sports became our lifeblood, the GAA, as the source, our lifeline. In the 125plus years since its founding, the GAA’s history has been intertwined with that of our fledgling nation, marked by political turmoil and a host of obstacles and triumphs, large and small. The back stories detailed on www.gaa.ie make for fascinating reading, outlining the organization’s timeline, profiles of its founders and key leaders, and so on. Persevering and growing, this much-revered body in 2013 boasts 2,300 participating clubs in Ireland and, increasingly, abroad. The official home of the GAA, Dublin’s iconic Croke Park, was extensively remodelled between 1993 and 2003, and seats 82,300, making it the fourth largest stadium in Europe.
