GAA Manifesto

Launched yesterday.  What do you think.  I really like it.  Think it sums us up well to those who don't know us.

New GAA Manifesto unveiled celebrating the Association's shared values and sense of belonging

Monday 8 April 2019

At 11am today the GAA issued a rallying call to every one of its 2,000 clubs dotted throughout Ireland and the globe as part of the unveiling of the new GAA Manifesto - an affirmation of our mission, vision and shared values, as well as a celebration of the people who make our Association what it is.

All clubs will receive the new manifesto which is centered around the statement: ‘GAA – Where We All Belong’ / CLG – Tá Áit Duinn Uilig Ann’ and the intention is for it to be proudly displayed across the GAA network and wherever Gaelic Games are played.

Clubs are encouraged to install the manifesto on their own premises and use it as a living reminder of our ideals as we head towards our 135th anniversary in November.

St Colmcille’s was today the chosen location for the unveiling of this manifesto – in both Irish and English. The Meath club has been lauded for its contribution to its community and its stellar activity in the Bettystown area – much of it away from the field of play.

The club embodies the role and importance of the thousands of players, coaches, administrators, members, supporters and volunteers who each play their part in making the wider Association the vibrant celebration of sport and culture that it is.

The manifesto unveiling marks the start of a wider support message that celebrates belonging to the GAA. This initiative follows in-depth research conducted over the past 12 months among 8,000 people into what the GAA really means to them in modern day Irish life. This research revealed that the sense of belonging the GAA gives to people is of utmost importance to them.

It's a positive statement for equality and inclusivenes as well as good kick in the goolies towards narrow minded bigots and racist type ideologues.

All good stuff, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

It has to be solid factor, seeing as Meath was the chosen launch point.
If it fails, we can blame Meath.
