Demands: GPA CEO Tom Parsons has outlined what the body is pushing for

Any negotiations made by unions on behalf of employees will always boil down to the following: time spent working against money paid. Conditions and fringe benefits are all nice and pleasant, but it’s essentially fluffy stuff after asking: “What’s my bottom line, and how long does that take me?”

The GAA and its players have a unique relationship. Gaelic Games are amateur sports and yet they still pay a private limited company in the Gaelic Players’ Association to look after player welfare. As long as the GAA pay the GPA, it is kept in existence.
