2 Mar 2013 - GAA National Youth Forum

Young LGFA Members invited to attend the GAA
National Youth Forum on March 2nd.
Since taking up his position as GAA President Liam
O’Neill has been eager to assess the GAA’s
relationship with the younger generations in
Ireland. For this reason he founded a Youth
Committee whom were, broadly speaking, tasked with
the job of assessing the GAAs relationship with
youth culture in Ireland and where the GAA could
adapt in order to improve its communication with
young people.
The committee was also charged with running the
National Youth Forum in 2013. This event gives
young members of the GAA an opportunity to come to
Croke Park as representatives of their County and
discuss and debate issues which they believe or
most relevant to the GAA today.
In order to develop a full and well rounded view
the Committee and the President would like
representatives from all sections of the GAA
family to attend. Ladies Football has been invited
to send 1 representative from each County to
attend on the day.
The Youth forum is taking place in Croke Park on
the 2nd of March (see timetable below)
Representatives must be under 23 and over 18.
