The GAA has unveiled plans to promote the organisation of all gaelic games under single administrative units at club level.
The Association, along with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and the Camogie Association, is to develop a 'One Club Model'.
GAA president Christy Cooney said he believes the process will strengthen ties between all of the Association's playing codes.
"This is an important process and the commitment we have received from both the Camogie Association and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association is a significant one," he said.
"I have visited scores of clubs over the course of the last 18 months and what has been agreed to in this initiative is in fact taking place in many of our clubs across the length and breadth of the country already.
"The next logical step is to try and formalise the co-operation between the codes at club level and the best way to attempt to do this is through the ready made invaluable network that our clubs provide."
