Mickey Loughran

Mickey Loughran talks about his lifetime of involvement with his local club, and more widely with the GAA in Tyrone. He recalls how his family introduced him to the games, and remembers the first match he went to. He talks about his involvement in the club, and the momentous moment when, after much effort and fundraising, the club bought its own pitch. He offers his views on the politics within his club, his arguments against professionalism and who he felt the best teams were. He is still fully involved in the GAA, having served on committees and consumed a lifetime of games live, on the radio and on television.
