Draw will go live at 9pm
You may have seen that the GAA launched a major strategic planning survey last week to give all players, members, and supporters an opportunity to shape the Association’s next five-year strategic plan. Here is a link to the press release: https://www.gaa.ie/news/gaa-launch-survey-to-shape-five-year-strategic-plan/
For the first time, we used Foireann to send the survey link directly to the e-mail address of every eligible member. This has resulted in 14,000 responses which is an encouraging start. However, we would like to increase this number even more to ensure as many members as possible contribute.
The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, and the deadline is 2 p.m. this Friday, 24 September. We would appreciate if all Clubs and Counties could encourage members and supporters in their communities to complete the survey by visiting: https://www.gaa.ie/2021-2026
An Irish language version of the survey can be accessed via this link: GAA Strategic Planning Survey – Gaeilge

The Board of Pairc Ui Chaoimh Stadium and Cork GAA note with surprise and extreme disappointment the decision of Cork City Council’s Planning Department in relation to its recent application for changes to the stadium and its environs.
The decision notwithstanding, there remain serious safety issues and infrastructural deficits that have the potential to impede the development of the stadium into the future.
The Board and Cork GAA’s intention was always to enhance the operation of the stadium and to improve its interaction and integration with Marina Park.
We submitted this planning application in good faith following extensive pre-planning consultations with Cork City Council, and had sought to engage positively and constructively in the process.
As applicants, we were expecting a request for further information from the Planning Department, and would have fully engaged with that process as is standard practice in most applications of this size and scale.
No such request was forthcoming.
The outright refusal raises serious and immediate questions about the safety of the existing vehicular access to Pairc UiChaoimh via the pedestrianised Marina.
Cork GAA has grave concerns about this ongoing situation.
The issue of insufficient disabled parking in proximity to the stadium, which was highlighted prominently in the application, remains a critical deficit.
The Board will continue to seek an appropriate resolution to the issues outlined, and will now consider all options.
We will continue to seek to engage with residents groups and all interested parties in a meaningful way as we work to achieve the full potential of the stadium for all the people of Cork.
The Board of Pairc UiChaoimh and Cork GAA will seek an urgent meeting with Cork City Council to discuss the refusal of the planning application.
