Why 3.30pm throw ins ?

    Just curious if anyone knows the origins of why Sunday GAA games traditionally start at 3.30 pm ?

    I know with the arrival of live TV that games earlier in the season now start at 2pm or 4pm, but anything not on TV on a Sunday start at 3:30pm.

    So why is it, ? how did it start ?, Had it anything to do with the end of morning mass, or getting done before the Angelus ?

    It's just odd that it's on the half hour rather than the hour.
