Down Jim, Angry as I am regarding church controversies, and the resultant suffering, I think it is unfair to ignore the fact that the Catholic Church and other religions have also had significant positive influence on society.
Our club has members from different religions and none. Many of our members come from a generation which enjoy great comfort from their religion. Community remembrance is long established and not exclusive to any religion. Why should we deprive anyone of that comfort and support?
Itís not compulsory and creating conflict around the issue is likely to cause upset to some. Many clubs engage with and provide support for charities and community organisations, should we stop this as well? Of course not, the GAA has historically been linked with a lot  of organisations to support and provide  comfort to their members and others, thatís what weíre about.

No harm in a mass. Its every individuals own choice. The church is going to make a massive come back anyhow sometime in the future, not in its current guise maybe, but certainly some form of it.

A GAA club should not be associating or promoting the activities of an organisation that spent decades covering up child abuse and the mistreatment of women

Most gaa clubhouses don't have a tv.

We shouldn't have the church near our sports clubs nor near our schools
