Sport Ireland must not withhold grants to GPA players

 Sport Ireland must not withhold grants to GPA players 

GPA members are still waiting on their 2017 State grants to be paid and they’re getting fed up. The reason they aren’t yet paid? Sport Ireland won’t pay out unless GPA players agree to new conditions including at home drug testing. It is the view of the GPA that Sport Ireland have no right to withhold these funds under existing rules as our members have always been in full compliance with the rules in this area.
