As elite athletes, you give everything to the game. It’s an amazing game, and it should be a big part of the picture of your life. But it shouldn’t be the full picture. The BEO 360 programme has been developed specifically for GPA members, to empower inter-county players to realise the bigger picture beyond your sport. To fulfil your potential. To provide you with options. To give you every chance on and off the field. Having a better plan for your off-field career provides better opportunities for greater on-field performance.

Welcome To The GPA

The Gaelic Players Association is the official representative body for football and hurling county players. The GPA was founded in 1999 and officially recognised in 2010. In 2020 the GPA and WGPA (Women’s Gaelic Players Association) merged and we now represent over 4,000 past and present players. We are dedicated to investing in a better and more sustainable future for county players across our four key pillars: Representation, Welfare, Development and Equality.

Cliona’s Foundation

We are delighted to have Cliona’s Foundation as our official charity partnership. The partnerships aims to raise vital funds to make a difference to the lives of families across Ireland caring for a seriously sick child. This partnership will see inter-county players across the thirty-two counties support Cliona’s Foundation’s life-changing work and contribute to the fundraising efforts of the charity for the next twelve-month period.
