Strategic Plan

Our Vision

Our vision is that everybody is welcomed to participate fully in our games and culture, that they thrive and develop their potential, and be inspired to keep a lifelong engagement with our Association.

Our Mission

The GAA is a community-based volunteer organisation promoting Gaelic games, Gaelic culture and lifelong participation.

Our Values

  • Respect
  • Player Welfare
  • Teamwork and Volunteerism

Strategic Goals

  1. Improve opportunities for participating in Gaelic games
  2. Develop our volunteers and administrators
  3. Govern and administer our affairs more efficiently
  4. Communicate GAA messages better to our members and followers
  5. Protect and grow our Association

Headline Objectives

  • Achieve a better balance between club and county fixtures
  • Counter challenges and capitalise on opportunities presented by population shifts
  • Enhance integration across the Gaelic games family
  • Mitigate inter-county team preparation and administration challenges
  • Revamp specialised and personal development opportunities for volunteers and administrators
  • Streamline administration at club and county levels
  • Sustain our amateur status value
  • Strengthen communication of organisational messages

Implementation Process

We will undertake a thorough approach to the implementation of the Strategic Plan which will involve:

  • The establishment of an Implementation Committee which will be chaired by the Uachtarán.
  • The delegation of specific objectives to the most appropriate people and groups to take the lead on delivering.
  • The creation of operational plans setting out yearly-goals, targets, lead responsibilities and the initial steps to be taken.
  • The on-going monitoring of progress against the indicators set out in the plan.
  • Regular reporting to An Coiste Bainistíochta.

The Strategic Plan will incorporate a rolling element to ensure that it remains flexible whereby the approaches within it will be reviewed on a regular basis by An Coiste Bainistíochta.
