This morning, Minister for Sport Jack Chambers announced that funding given to the male players in the GAA will be equalled with that given to lady players

Currently, male players receive 1200 euro from the state with female players receiving just a third of that figure at 400 euro.

The move was prompted by the merging of the GPA and the WGPA earlier this year.

Male players will continue to receive 1200 euro with female players now equalling that amount.

The total funding given from the government to GAA players will now pass the 5-million-euro mark.

It is some positive news for the lady’s game, following on from the news that there is to be no underage All Irelands for ladies’ sides in 2021, with provincial championships optional for counties to participate in.
