The first meeting of the Steering Group on Integration ('SGI'), chaired by Mary McAleese, took place on October 19th.
It was unanimously agreed that the future integrated structure will be based on One Association for all Gaelic games and built on the principle of equality. It was also unanimously agreed that a significant listening process is required to assist the development of the integrated structure and this process should be one where all voices are given an opportunity to contribute.
To begin this process representatives of Clubs, One Clubs, Camogie Association, GAA and LGFA management, Players, County Committees, Provincial Councils, and relevant others including representatives of outside organizations which have successfully affected integration processes will be invited to take part.
Starting this December, the SGI plans to hold a series of one-day forums on the “how” of integration to which these representatives will be invited and given the opportunity to share their ideas with members of the Steering Group.
Further details on the one-day forums will be published when finalized.
