The Gaelic Players Association has submitted a motion for consideration at GAA Congress urging the GAA to take swift action to integrate with the LGFA and the Camogie Association.
It is inter-county players’ firmly held belief that for equality to be achieved within the Gaelic games family, integration of the three National Governing Bodies must be made a priority.
They say that this can then have a major positive impact on wider Irish society.
In recent research amongst our membership 97% of all inter-county players backed integration between the three NGBs.
GAA Congress takes place in Mayo on Saturday, the 26th of February.
Between now and then the GPA will be lobbying for support of this motion.
Speaking about the motion GPA CEO and former Mayo footballer Tom Parsons said;
“The spirit of this motion is about action for gender equality in sport and bringing the Gaelic family together.
It is about showing women and girls, whether they are involved in Gaelic games or not, that the biggest sporting and cultural organisation in Ireland values you every bit as much as it does your brothers, partners, nephews and husbands.”
