Female inter-county players to boycott official media events for remainder of the Championship

Female inter-county GAA players have escalated their ongoing protests as they bid to secure equal treatment to their male counterparts.

Camogie and Ladies footballers will boycott planned upcoming media events organised by the LGFA and Camogie Association for the remainder of the Championship.

There is no indication that male inter-county players will follow suit, with just two and a half weeks of the football and hurling championship remaining - barring replays.

The move was agreed at a meeting of female GPA player reps and captains yesterday as part of the #UnitedForEquality protest.

Currently male inter-county players receive 70cent per mile for travel expenses, with less than 10percent of ladies players receiving any expenses.

The GPA are adamant that the GAA should foot the bill, and have called for a plan to equalise expenses for 2024.

A GPA statement said they would organise media access to players and local and regional media outlets would not be affected.

The move and continuing protests are a blow to the two parent bodies and sponsorship arrangements they have in place with companies like TG4 (ladies football) and Glen Dimplex (camogie).
