Games Development Personnel


With the assistance of funding from Sport Ireland (formerly known as the Irish Sports Council), the Association employs over 300 Games Development Personnel nationwide, who are responsible for the implementation of activities under the Grassroots to National Programme.

Games Development Personnel are deployed at National, Provincial and County level. Since 2009 Games Development Managers (GDMs) have been deployed in all Counties. Each County has introduced a variable structure of Games Development Administrators (GDA) and Games Promotion Officers (GPO), depending on the county’s requirements.
