Since taking up his position as GAA President Liam O’Neill has been eager to assess the GAA’s relationship with the younger generations in Ireland. For this reason he founded a Youth Committee whom were, broadly speaking, tasked with the job of assessing the GAAs relationship with youth culture in Ireland and where the GAA could adapt in order to improve its communication with young people.
The committee was also charged with running the National Youth Forum in 2013. This event gives young members of the GAA an opportunity to come to Croke Park as representatives of their County and discuss and debate issues which they believe or most relevant to the GAA today.
In order to develop a full and well rounded view the Committee and the President would like representatives from all sections of the GAA family to attend. Ladies Football has been invited to send 1 representative from each County to attend on the day.
The Youth forum is taking place in Croke Park on the 2nd of March (see timetable below) Representatives must be under 23 and over 18.
