Our members play Ladies Gaelic Football and Camogie, games indigenous to Ireland and the largest female sports in the country. WGPA was launched in January 2015 to represent the interests of intercounty players; the elite amateur athletes who play at the top level of these sports. The players body is overseen by an 12 member executive and membership has grown to over to over 1,500 current players from 55 squads across the 32 counties of Ireland, as well as an ever-growing number of past players. Our aim is to improve their experiences both and off the field of play.
