Golden Jubilee[edit]

The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1934 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the foundation of the Gaelic Athletic Association.

  • In honour of the golden jubilee a special set of All-Ireland medals were struck and presented to the championship winner, and a postage stamp was issued on 27 July 1934, which was designed by Richard King (artist).[2]

    "They were all delighted in Limerick over the G.A.A. Jubilee Stamp. They regard it as an omen that the colours chosen for the jersey of the hurler depicted on the stamp are those of the winners of the 1934 All-Ireland".[3]
