Abstract
This article examines the depiction of gaelic games in British newsreel between the 1920s and the 1940s. The article notes the sometimes peculiar and condescending manner through which these games were sometimes depicted, but also recognises the importance these productions played in the popularisation of Gaelic games in 20th century Ireland.
