GAA demographics webinar – Practical advice for clubs and counties

The GAA’s Community Development Committee, Urban and Rural, is holding a webinar next Tuesday, March 2, from 7 to 8.30pm, which will focus on two areas that can have a significant impact on our Clubs and communities: 1) Demographics, 2) The County Development Plan process. The webinar will focus on how Club and County Committees can respond to these influences.


You will receive the link to join before the meeting.

What You Will Learn

Part 1 – It is critical for Club and County Committees to identify and understand the impact of demographic changes on Clubs. This webinar will highlight demographic trends and demonstrate how Clubs can utilise their resources and the new Geographic Information System (GIS) toolkit to manage the impact of demographic change.

Part 2 – The webinar will also highlight the impact of Local Authority Planning on our communities and outline how Clubs can engage with this planning process to mitigate some of the effects.

It will be presented by Colm Cummins (Chairperson of the Community Development Committee, and Secretary of the Offaly County Committee).
