The Gaelic Players Association (GPA) and the Women’s Gaelic Players Association (WGPA) are set to vote on the two players’ bodies merging into one association.

Separate EGMs are due to take place on December 14th to allow voting on motions for the merge to happen.

A statement was released on Wednesday morning on behalf of the GPA and the Women’s GP:

"The Gaelic Players Association (GPA) and the Women’s Gaelic Players Association (WGPA) have issued notification to all members of separate Extraordinary General Meetings (EGMs) to take place on Monday, December 14th.

"The purpose of the EGMs is to discuss taking the necessary steps to allow for the formal coming together of the two associations as one new combined players’ association.

 "Voting on motions that would allow for this to happen will take place.

 "The move comes after motions were approved at the GPA’s and the WGPA’s Annual General Meetings in 2019 to formalise the extremely positive relationship that currently exists between the two player bodies.

"Players from both associations will now make the final decision on whether or not they want to become part of one new players’ association."

The GPA was founded in 1999 as a representative body for men's senior inter-county players, while the WGPA set up more recently in 2015.
