The 2020 All-Ireland Championship Season will be unlike any that have gone before with both the timing and the format having significant impacts on the preparation and training of inter-county GAA players nationwide. The partnership between the GPA, the GAA and Avonmore Protein Milk sees a contribution from each litre of Avonmore Protein Milk sold going to support the GPA’s player support programme that provides off-field assistance to inter-county players across health, education, personal and career development. Monies raised through the partnership also support grassroots GAA development projects.

In place since 2014, we are delighted that the sale of every single litre of Avonmore Protein Milk helps with the provision of important off-field supports to inter-county players nationwide and to grassroots development of the GAA. Whilst in Avonmore Protein Gold we have developed a tasty whey protein milk drink that is low in fat, a source of Calcium, Vitamin B12 and added Vitamin D to serve as a source of protein for those who feel that it will fit into their nutrition goals.”

It is great to have the support of Avonmore Protein Milk that can help my preparation and nutrition whilst also enabling the work of the GPA in supporting inter-county players away from the game.”
