Michael Cusack was one of the founding fathers of the Gaelic Athletic Association (the GAA) in the 1880’s. The Cusack Centre, Carron, Co. Clare, his birthplace, is situated amongstthe rugged beauty of the Burren. Our aim here at the centre is to relate his remarkable story through our audio visual exhibit set in the original thatched cottage where Michael was born in 1847 during the Famine years.
Our visitor centre and exhibit has something for everyone, young and old. It is the perfect day trip for schools, tourists or active age groups. So whether you’re planning a Burren walk, looking for activities in Clare or interested in the history of the GAA be sure to visit one of the most interesting Co. Clare attractions: The Michael Cusack Centre.
