Over the years, the GAA and its people have weathered many storms. But whenever there's a threat, this is when the GAA comes together to look after their own.

After the Storm: How the GAA Found New Hope tells the story of the biggest and most recent threat we have faced, a global pandemic, and how the people of the GAA coped with a situation never seen before. These are stories of resilience and courage in the face of unknown odds, people helping each other as never before, and tales of loss, hope and the will to fight another day.

Above all, this is the story of the life-and-death struggle for survival of the GAA and its people, and the incredible way they rallied and found new hope for the future.

'A terrific idea brought to beautifully intimate colour, exploring an extraordinary time in all our lives through the power of the GAA community. An absolute triumph.'
- Vincent Hogan, sports reporter, Irish Independent

'The stories in this book are a catalogue of resilience and the capacity of people to find ways to make the best of everything. Damian Lawlor uses his unparalleled network across the GAA to document its covid experience from new and fascinating perspectives. From extraordinary acts of kindness to the pain of loss, this book tells vivid tales of how GAA members lived through a brutal pandemic.'
- Paul Rouse, Professor of History, UCD

'Lawlor uses his in-depth knowledge of the GAA to make real the impact of the pandemic on people, families and communities. He captures the human scale of its challenge and the impressive response of players, members, volunteers, clubs and the GAA leadership. The result is a rich and uniquely Irish account of this global health emergency.'
- Dr Tony Holohan, Former Chief Medical Officer of Ireland
