About Dominic Williams

 

Dominic Williams has been an avid supporter of Gaelic Games since his first visit to Croke Park in the late forties.  He has been ever present at venues throughout the Country, supporting Wexford teams in all grades of hurling and football over a seventy year period.

He has attended all twelve of Wexford’s Senior Hurling Final Appearances since 1951 and has rarely missed other important championship encounters at Provincial and National level, or when the County were involved at the final stages of other premier competitions.

He has been actively involved in his club Taghmon-Camross from an early age playing at underage and adult level, and later filled the position of Bord Na Nog Chairman, Club Secretary, Treasurer, and County Board Representative for many years. He was a founder member, trustee and treasurer of The Taghmon Community Centre which opened in 1979, until shortly before its subsequent handover to Taghmon-Camross GAA Club in the early nineties.

 At County level he featured prominently in the early seventies, in the setting up of Bord Na Nog Loch Garman, the forerunner to Coiste Na Nog the current under age body. He was New Ross District Secretary for a number of years, County Chairman for a short period and was a prominent referee at that level during the same time, when he also coached and managed County teams at minor and under 14 football level.

He is an avid collector of GAA sports memorabilia from the early nineteen hundreds, and has accumulated one of the largest collection of match programmes in the country.

He has travelled extensively and is a regular supporter of Irish International teams of various denominations abroad at major European and World Cup competitions. 

The Wexford GAA Bible is just his second publication, although he has been a frequent contributor to Magazines, Newspapers, and Match Programmes over a number of years and recently was a contributor to the prestigious Boston College GAA Oral History Project at Croke Park.

 A Complete Statistical History of Wexford GAA

      By Dominic Williams

As the title suggests, the Bible covers all aspects of GAA activities in the County from the earliest records in the late eighteen eighties to the present day. The only publication of its kind, the illustrated sold out 380 page edition was first issued in 2008, and quickly became the ultimate reference point for GAA followers throughout County Wexford.
