Carroll Lecture Series: The Role of Sport in Modern Irish Identity

Join us at Roger Bacon Hall, Room 202 at Siena College, where Dr. Peter Moloney will discuss the role of sport in modern Irish society, including the cultural importance of the GAA as well as its parochial structure. The popularity of and reaction to other sports was often at odds with GAA culture, as he will outline. The urban/rural differences will also be explored as will gender roles.
