It's not a set of rules, but an affirmation of our GAA’s mission, vision and values, brought to life in a way that everyone can connect with, champion and celebrate. It’s everything we hold true and aspire to every day.
Our hope is that this manifesto is displayed proudly anywhere Gaelic games are played - at home or abroad.
Our GAA. Where we all belong.
