Michael McMahon

Michael McMahon is among the longest-serving GAA personnel in New York. He served as a delegate from the Clare club to the NY GAA board for more than 50 years (1952-2005) and only retired in 2005. The interview has very interesting points on the GAA in Clare where he grew up and his father’s negative attitude to football. He gave a very open account of the GAA in New York in his time and gives an excellent insight into the ins and outs of keeping a club going in New York, and the various ruses clubs got up to. He also remembers many of the great footballers who played in new York during his time here. He has been a little disillusioned with some of the developments in NY GAA in recent years.
