2017 has seen the highest ever number of applications with 106 clubs applying for accreditation.
Games Manager, Kevin O Callaghan says “it shows the great work going on in our clubs throughout the county and all our club Coaching Officers deserve huge credit for the effort they put in to steering their clubs to achieve accreditation. Our GDA’s also deserve immense credit for the work they do in supporting the clubs and Coaching Officers throughout the county. I would like to congratulate all clubs on their accreditation and would encourage clubs to strive towards achieving the Gold standard by 2020 or before it.”
