History of Croke Park

In the 1880’s, before Croke Park was a sports stadium it was a racecourse and was owned by Maurice Butterly. In 1890 it was also used by a football club. In 1908 is when the Gaelic Athletic Association took over and used the park strictly for Irish sports such as hurling and Gaelic football. Each stand that is in the stadium is named after something or someone with sentimental meaning. 

 We have the standing terrace known as Hill 16 in memory of the Easter Rising. There is the Cusack stand which is named after Michael Cusack and he was the founder of the GAA. Another stand is the Davin stand which is named after Maurice Davin who was a famous athlete and the first president of the GAA. Lastly there is the Hogan stand which is named after Michael Hogan who was shot on Bloody Sunday. To conclude Croke Park was named after Archbishop Thomas Croke who was one of the GAA’s first patrons.
