Forgotten Codes (2015)Documentary · 1 November 2015
The GAA is one of the world's most successful amateur sporting organisations and considered one of the pillars of Irish cultural identity. However, two of its foundation sports, set out in its original charter in 1884, are virtually unknown to the millions of fans of GAA sport around the world today: GAA Handball and GAA Rounders. This documentary sets out to investigate these sports, their enormous legacy abroad, particularly in the US, and asks why they have become so neglected at home and what can be done to redress the situation.
