Inter-county players vote to form one combined players’ association

Inter-county players vote to form one combined players’ association

This evening at Extraordinary General Meetings (EGMs) of both the Gaelic Players Association (GPA) and the Women’s Gaelic Players Association (WGPA), inter-county players voted overwhelmingly to combine the two associations into one 4,000-member players’ association.

The first meeting of the newly combined association was held post the respective EGMs.  A Transitional National Executive Committee (TNEC) was established at this meeting.

The TNEC will have its first meeting in January where Executive Officers will be elected including co-chairs.  The TNEC will oversee the direction and strategy until the first Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Q2 of 2021.

At the 2021 AGM a new NEC will be elected which will proportionally represent the association’s female and male members.

As a result of tonight’s decision, changes will also be made to the composition of the GPA DAC Board of Directors, with the desire to achieve a 50:50 gender balance.  The current chair Professor Brían MacCraith will lead this process.
