Following a formal application process, five charities delivering vital work across a broad range of important social issues were selected by the Association. In place since 2008, the GAA charity partner process has now delivered almost €1.5m to over 50 charities. The other 2023 GAA charity partners, unveiled at a recent photocall in Croke Park, are Women’s Aid, ALONE, Young Lives v Cancer and Movember.
Each of the five charities will receive a donation from the GAA of €20,000. Supporting charities is engrained in the GAA, its clubs, and members.
The money raised through this partnership in 2023 will go to Trócaire’s work in Syria, specifically helping those affected by the recent Turkey/Syria earthquake. Trócaire has been working in Syria for over 13 years where conflict has resulted in the worst humanitarian crisis in a generation. The fallout of the earthquake has added to an already heartbreaking situation.
Trócaire want to thank the GAA for their support in their 50th anniversary year and really looking forward to working with them in the year ahead.
