The GAA have announced details of a new online questionnaire which seeks the opinions of GAA members and the general public on how the Association is perceived and on its role in moden Irish society.

The exercise is part of a broader review in this context which has seen the Association carry out in-depth research among its clubs, players, officials, members and among supporters of the Asscoiation as well as key political and media figures.

The President of the GAA, Mr Nickey Brennan, said: “It is important that we consult with our members and the wider community so that we can take as broad a range of views as possible into consideration in terms of how the Association is perceived by our own members and indeed the general public.

"As part of the process we have prepared a short questionnaire to enable us to get a real insight into opinions about the GAA. It is intended to aid us in understanding where we stand at present and how we can develop in the future and we would welcome the participation of interested parties in helping us acheive this goal.”

The GAA have held a series of consultations with its members at all levels in recent months which included nation-wide workshops which sought the opinions of club members of all ages (from 12 years of age upwards) from all over the country. The views of major figures in Irish public life were also canvassed as part of this process and an omnibus national market research programme has been commissioned. A questionnaire has been sent to each club in the country and the online survey represents the final strand in the programme.

The questionnaire is currently available to complete at www.gaa.ie or directly at www.questionnaire.gaa.ie and has already generated a huge amount of interest among individuals wishing to have their say in relation to the ongoing development of the Association.
