An Lár TV will be featuring the documentary 'CIE GAA 125 - Celebrating Matches in Croke Park' at 7pm from Sunday 6th January 2013. The program will also be included in the published schedule on www.anlar.tv
It gives me great pleasure as Chairman of CIE / Transport Gaels GAA Club to welcome you to our website. This is one of the most enjoyable and satisfying projects our club has undertaken in recent times. Many old photographs were sourced depicting the present times and times past and are displayed in our photo gallery. We would like to record for posterity the outstanding achievements of all CIE Clubs, in various units of the Company nationwide. There have of course been lows and disappointments but when success came it was greatly deserved.
The legendry tales of night trains travelling long distances to Croke Park from places such as Kerry, and the ongoing practise of so many teams and their supporters returning home by bus and train, victorious with silverware, underline the long lasting ties between C. I. E. and the G. A. A. In 1885, the year after the Association was founded; over 15,000 people attended a G. A. A. competition in Tralee.
The teams and their supporters were able to travel to more distant places because the century provided a new mode of transport, the railway, and its existence had a lot to do with the development of sport. In 1905, the Great Southern and Western and Railway presented the G. A. A. with two shields for competition between provincial teams in hurling and football.
To mark the 125th of the first transport club, Henry Grattan G. F. C. founded by railway workers at the ‘Inchicore Works’ in 1886, the G. A. A. gave Transport Gaels G. A. A. club permission to play football, hurling and camogie matches in Croke Park on Saturday 8th October 2011.
