In 2019 once again, our Leinster GAA Games Development Committee chaired by Iar-Uachtarán Liam O’Neill, aim to provide more games, more games of a similar standard and also to lengthen the playing season around the province, therefore giving players more exposure to GAA for longer each year. In doing this we aim to increase participation, combat drop off and improve standards.
Due to the heavy snow in the early part of 2018, when the country came to a standstill we lost a full round of games which made it very difficult to complete some competitions. There is nothing any one could have done about this, but some later games were called off due to rain and unplayable pitches and we want to try avoid this in 2019. Taking this into consideration, we have taken the step that should a venue be unplayable, Leinster GAA will be block booking a number of astro turf venues throughout the province, which will be the alternative venue for any game which falls foul to the weather.
With the above change and the alterations from your feedback regarding deposits, gradings and distance travelled in the last two years, we endeavour to have a more definite calendar which provides games for players and clubs in the early part of the year.
