The first line of the GAA Official Guide spells out how the GAA reaches into every corner of Ireland and many communities around the globe. In doing this, the GAA is fully committed to the principles of inclusion and diversity at all levels. This is what the GAA believes in and expects its members to adhere to. Opting out of these responsibilities is not an option.
Since the vast bulk of the GAA’s work is undertaken at club level, it follows that we must bring life to these principles of inclusion and diversity amongst our clubs. They’re not just something for our provincial or national leaders: they are something for us to work on and deliver on a daily basis at club level. If the clubs don’t drive this work forward, then progress in advancing these ideals will be limited.
This website has been developed as a resource to assist members looking for information on inclusion and integration throughout the family of Gaelic Games. Information has been divided into activities in the following areas: inclusion and integration, equality legislation, specific grounds of discrimination and best practice measures.
