Statement on behalf of the WGPA and GPA

The Women’s Gaelic Players Association (WGPA) and Gaelic Players Association (GPA) have issued notification to all members of separate Extraordinary General Meetings (EGMs) to take place on Monday, December 14th.

The purpose of the EGMs is to discuss taking the necessary steps to allow for the formal coming together of the two associations as one new combined players’ association.

Voting on motions that would allow for this to happen will take place.

The move comes after motions were approved at the WGPA’s and the GPA’s Annual General Meetings in 2019 to formalise the extremely positive relationship that currently exists between the two player bodies.

Players from both associations will now make the final decision on whether or not they want to become part of one new players’ association.
