Ireland in 2015 is very different from what it was even 5 years ago, regarding the current climate of financial situations and quality of life in general. There has been a mass emigration of young Irish men and women from the country in the last few years in search of better opportunities and employment, and the country has suffered immensely as a direct result of this.

This series of photographs and interviews was a personal exploration into the world of the Gaelic Games to find out how recent national conditions have affected local clubs. I interviewed a number of people, including a Dutch man who has recently taken up the sports, to see how the world of GAA stands in 2015.
