File of dissociated club material collected by John Clarke

File of dissociated club records. Includes note/letter from Richard ('Dick') Barry, USA, to [John Clarke] outlining the origins of Tullamore GAA Club. 'This group was the one that became affiliated with the GAA in 1904. I left that year in July so did not play in any of the county games. Seán Forrestal and Gerald O'Loughlin and Jack Craven MtPleasant were also members. Jack Craven was probably the last all round men on the team. Rough and tough it took a very exceptional man to get a ball away from him or rise when he was playing on them...etc.'

Also includes Secretary's reports for 1966, 1967 and 1968, as well as club financial accounts for those years and, separately, 1980.
