This article makes an original contribution to the growing historiography on the role of sport, and more specifically, Gaelic games amongst Irish immigrant communities around the world. It does so by shedding light on the origins and early history of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) in late nineteenth century and early twentieth century London. In particular, the article explores the ways in which membership of this organization allowed sections of the city’s Irish population to preserve and express their ethnic specificity and support for Irish nationalism. This reveals that Gaelic games were drawn on by a diverse range of organizations and individuals who sought to utilize these sports to galvanize support for varying shades of Irish nationalism.
