Equality is at the essence of the latest effort to amalgamate the two women’s Gaelic games organisations with the GAA, the Gaelic Players’ Association (GPA) looking to crystallise opinion on that matter with their motion at Congress this weekend.
GPA chief executive Tom Parsons outlined that exact intention at a press briefing at the Radisson Hotel in Dublin Airport on Monday, highlighting the fact the biggest push is coming from the players themselves, and that the time for integration is “here and now”.
Motion 33 calls on the association “to prioritise integration with the LGFA and Camogie Association in order to jointly ensure equal recognition, investment and opportunity for all genders to play all sports in the Gaelic games family”.
For Parsons, the former Mayo footballer, there’s already been enough talk on the matter, now is the time for action.
