The Women’s Gaelic Players Association has been formally launched this week.
The WGPA has been set up to represent, listen to, and support women footballers and camogie players who represent their county at the highest level in their sport.
The WGPA states it is committed to improving the playing, personal and professional lives of its members.
In 2015 the WGPA will provide a 24/7 member support line where players can access advice and guidance on challenges they are experiencing in their lives. A third level scholarship scheme will support players who are managing dual careers.
