Gaelic Players Association Statement on Camogie Season Structure
The Gaelic Players Association (GPA) welcome the Camogie Association’s decision to take seven days to reflect on their proposed season structure.

Players have overwhelmingly voted (84% of 752 players who responded in last 24 hours) that they will not participate in the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues should the current season structure be retained. The GPA will represent this view from our members to the Camogie Association.
We had recently informed (April 2nd) the Camogie Association that our members wanted to see a split-season introduced. The key factors that influenced the split-season choice were:
We want to see a solution that is in the best interest of all players which we believe the split season provides.
