The GAA Club is the basic unit of the Association and the primary structure through which the GAA undertakes its mission, which states

‘The GAA is a community-based volunteer organisation promoting Gaelic games, culture and lifelong participation.’

The objective of the GAA Club is the promotion at the local level of the Association’s aims, as outlined in the Official Guide – Chapter 1: Aims and Ethos.

The Association’s basic aim is to “strengthen the National Identity” through its primary purpose to promote and control the National games of Hurling, Gaelic Football, Handball, and Rounders.

Its additional aims are to:

• Actively support the Irish language and Irish culture

• Support the promotion of Camogie and Ladies Gaelic Football

• Support the Irish industry

The GAA Club is the bedrock of every Irish community and provides an organised structure from which great community spirit is generated. Today, almost every town and village in the country has its own GAA headquarters, centred on the playing of our exciting games and building on 125 years of great history and success.

These clubs are a tremendous influence in their local communities. The GAA is a strong and vibrant Association thanks to the army of dedicated volunteers at the Club level committed to the promotion and development of our clubs and our games.

It’s vital our clubs continue to grow and reinvent themselves to ensure that this structure is reinforced. Through planning ahead for the future, the GAA will help ensure that clubs remain strong and that dedicated voluntary officials at the Club level continue to commit to the promotion and development of our games and our Association.
