Stradbally GAA has been an integral part of the community throughout its existence and the old photos available here give a glimpse of times gone by and record some of players who have represented Stradbally.
Stradbally GAA club was formed in October 1886. At that time football or hurling were not the main sports of the GAA but athletics was the main activity. However a football team was formed in Stradbally in November 1886 with an enrollment of 40. players.
The Gaelic Athletic Association was formed in Thurles in 1884 with a branch in Waterford City being formed in 1885 and Stradbally branch in 1886. It could be said we were there almost from the start.
