Visitors to the Michael Cusack Centre will soon find that, aside from learning about the man on who ‘The Citizen’ in James Joyce’s Ulysses was modelled on, the Centre is also a key resource for 19th Century Ireland and the history, landscape and wildlife of Burren. By taking the tour and following life of the founder of Gaelic Athletic Association, locals and tourists alike will be amazed at how influential a figure Michael Cusack was and still remains, with a fantastic insight into Irish sporting past.
Born in Carron, County Clare in 1847, Cusack held a passion for the Gaelic games that was only equalled with his love for the Burren limestone landscape.
The tour consists of his herdsman’s cottage, his school life, extracts from his diary and, of course, a detailed look into his sporting exploits, outlining the steps he took towards propelling hurling and Gaelic sports in general into the world spotlight. Also at the Centre, visitors will find research, archive and lecture facilities (plus a gift shop and tea room) that all contribute to serving the memory of one of Ireland’s great sporting heroes.
Daily, 10am – 5pm from April to October. Last admission is at 4.30pm each day.
Winter tours by appointment only.
