Following the GAA’s Annual Congress in April 2012, a new rule was enacted that made it mandatory to use a mouthguard in all Gaelic football matches and training sessions from January 1, 2014 (excluding adult females).
The GAA are pleased to announce that an agreement was reached to distribute GAA/GPA mouthguards.
Following on from our extensive research of the market, these mouthguards, supplied in association with OPRO, are the best product available in terms of quality, certification and value for money. The OPRO product range includes both boil & bite self-fit mouthguards and also custom-fitted mouthguards.
Boil & Bite Self-fit Mouthguard
The boil and bite mouth guards are now available to purchase. They come in four categories of protection: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. The silver is available in a junior size. Both bronze and gold are also available in the Ortho format which caters for players wearing braces.
These are available for purchasing through a number of local retailers including Supervalu, Centra, Elvery’s, Lifestyle and Heatons.
