Club History

Rathcline GAA has a very rich history from its inception in 1890. Unfortunately memorabilia is spread far and wide and a lot of detail on our club has become somewhat lost in the last 50 years.

The purpose of this website is to establish a library of material in which all patrons can experience a trip down memory lane. The executive is asking any people who have any club material to lend it over for a couple of days.

Any material which is passed on to the club will be handled with the utmost of care and will be returned to the owner in a speedy fashion. The material will be scanned / copied and archived.

It is hoped by the end of the year, our club will have nice collection memories and thus the history of Rathcline GAA passed on to future generations.

Please contact pro.rathcline.longford@gaa.ie to pass on information for display.
