Does the Losing Side in GAA All-Ireland Finals Get Medals?
« on: Monday 03 August 20 10:33 BST (UK) »
I remember a great-aunt of mine saying that the medal she was wearing was a GAA gold medal for hurling. Just looked it up, and a great-uncle was on the Wexford team in 1912. But they lost. Would he still have received a medal?
