Online survey will help GAA develop 2018-2020 Strategic Plan

Every GAA member and anyone with an interest in Gaelic Games is being encouraged to help the Association develop its Strategic Plan for the period 2018-2020 by completing an online survey. Every completed survey will play its part in developing the GAA’s strategies and goals for the next three-year period.

If you have strong views on how the GAA should deal with issues such as fixture planning, coaching structures, administration, rules and regulations, recruitment and retention of players, ticketing, the promotion of hurling, and training of referees among many others, this is your opportunity to have your voice heard.

A Steering Group chaired by the Uachtarán-tofa, John Horan, has been put in place to develop the Association’s strategy and this survey is part of phase one of the process.

The survey will run until January 15, 2018, after which the second phase will involve the production of a consultation paper based largely on the feedback from the survey.

All clubs are encouraged to ask their members to complete the online survey which will take approximately five minutes – GAA Strategic Planning Survey


Bingo continues every Friday at 8.30, come along and bring a friend for an enjoyable night’s entertainment.
