The Untapped Global Potential of Gaelic Games

Making Room for GAA Club Games

Posted on January 21st, 2015 by Admin

Sean Moran, writing in the Irish Times, once had a colleague tell him that the GAA promoting high profile inter-county competitions at the expense of the club game would be “akin to borrowing hospital generators for a celebrity concert to raise funds for the sick.”

It would seem like the message has finally gotten through to senior management and a recommendation to condense the inter-county calendar to make a bit of room for club games may now be trialled for two years. It will be interesting to see if that is enough to make a difference or will there be calls for even more took to be made. Either way it is unlikely that there will be much of a scramble to reinstate the old calendar.
