The GAA, the Camogie Association and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association is fully committed to the principles of inclusion and diversity at all levels.
On the 20th of June, the GAA, the Camogie Association and LGFA invites all clubs to become allies with the LGBT+ community and support Sport Ireland’s ‘Let’s Get Visible’ Campaign.
GAA Diversity and Inclusion officer Ger McTavish explains:
“Inclusion is about making a difference. Inclusivity is a movement, a move to include. Being truly inclusive is living our GAA motto, ‘Where we all Belong’.
“This work takes many forms. It ranges from ensuring that our policies and practices support the cultural integration and social inclusion of people from across Ireland’s diverse population, to promoting sport and physical activity to everyone regardless of age, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, nationality, or fitness level.”
