Luke O’Toole’s full-time appointment as general secretary of the GAA marked the start of a revitalisation of an organisation that had been close to extinction. The Wickow man served for 29 years bringing stability to the GAA and transforming it into a national organisation through the creation of provincial councils. Croke Park was updated in his time and he also led and planned Gaelic Sunday in 1918.
