------------------

Also noted was the GPA’s work in the area of social initiatives such as the prevention of suicide, unfortunately a serious crisis in Ireland particularly among young men.

Fronted by GPA chief executive and chairperson Dónal Óg Cusack, the GPA will continue to promote its work and the long-term sustainability of its Player Development Program in the US.

Assisting county GAA players with their off-field lives can help secure the future health of Gaelic games. The challenge for the GPA is to ensure that we can continue to deliver that support into the future.

There are many people we would like to sincerely thank for making this visit highly productive. None more so than Kieran McLoughlin of the American Ireland Fund and the members of our advisory group which had its inaugural meeting on Thursday. We look forward to their ongoing support and indeed the support of others as we continue on this journey.
