A county of firsts when it comes to the history of the GAA as the association was founded at a meeting that took place in a hotel billiards room in Hayes Hotel Thurles, Co. Tipperary, on 1 November 1884. They are the first team to win the All Ireland senior hurling title in 1887 against Galway. The first GAA president was a Tipperary man named Maurice Davin. He and Michael Cusack called the famous meeting in Hayes’s Hotel in Thurles where they founded the GAA. Davin was a world class athlete and the only person to hold the position of President twice. In 2003 the “railway end” in Croke Park was renamed The Davin Stand in honour of his contribution to our games. Tipp were first Munster and All-Ireland U21 champions in 1964 and are the only county to win a hurling senior All-Ireland in every decade since 1887. First county to win Senior, Junior and minor All-Ireland titles in 1930 in either hurling or football. Like to add something? We’d love to hear from you by email: suggestions@ganzee.ie
