This Sydney GAA club paid tribute to 1916 on a gorgeous beach

We want to go to there.

WHILE THE COMMEMORATIONS have passed, people are still coming up with their own ways to honour the anniversary of the Easter Rising.

Across the world in Syndey, Cormac McAnallen’s GAA club’s fabulous beach tribute is going viral.

During their annual Cormac McAnallen’s GAC Sydney Beach Football Tournament on Sunday, the club called on the local Irish community to help them form a brilliant 1916 2016 Éire on the sand at Maroubra Beach.


The video is scored by a reading of the Proclamation, and it’s surprisingly poignant.


These just don’t get old.
