Former President of Ireland Mary McAleese is set to be the independent chairperson of the integration process between the GAA, the Camogie Association and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA).

“The Gaelic Games Associations are pleased to announce that former President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, has agreed to be independent Chairperson of the integration process between the Camogie Association, the GAA, and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association,” a statement released this afternoon reads.

“Over the course of this year, all three Gaelic Games Associations separately discussed integration towards a One Association model.

“Mark Dorman has been confirmed as Project Manager for the integration process.

“A timeline on discussions between Chairperson McAleese and the three Associations will be agreed in the coming weeks to advance the project.”

The GPA’s motion to prioritise integration was passed at GAA Annual Congress by an overwhelming majority.
