"It can only have positives for camogie and ladies football" - McGrath

Galway camogie star Siobhan McGrath feels that bringing the GAA, the LGFA and Camogie Association together into one organisation can only have a positive effect.

The end of last year saw the Gaelic Players Association (GPA) and the women's equivalent (WPGA) amalgamating into a single players’ body which now represents around 4,000 inter-county players.

Speaking to RTE Sport on the subject of joining together all of the associations, McGrath stated: "100%, definitely - I think it can only have positives for camogie and ladies football.

"When Liam O'Neill was president (of the GAA) he pushed for that, and it feels like camogie and ladies football are not really reaching out in the correct way to get it amalgamated.

"I know from my own experience here in UL (that) the GAA club is all the one. You can really see the benefits of that, and it would only be the same really if they all went under the same umbrella.

"Here we get all the same facilities, same supports, same resources - I don't see why you wouldn't want to pool all your resources together.”
