GPA should have say in fixture planning - Flynn

February 14, 2019

GPA CEO Paul Flynn speaking at the GPA Reps Day

Gaelic Players Association CEO Paul Flynn says the players’ body “should have a seat at the table” when it comes to the CCCC setting fixtures.

Criticism of fixtures has been seemingly constant in recent times, with competitions such as the Allianz Leagues, All-Ireland club championships and Fitzgibbon and Sigerson Cups overlapping each other this time of year.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Dublin star Flynn said that the GPA deserve to be part of the process in fixture planning as they represent the inter-county players.

“There's more need for all the bodies to be involved in the decision making," he said.

"The fixtures is something that's vitally important across the organisation.

"For us, it's about who do we represent? We represent the inter-county players.

"We want our voice heard with regards to fixtures and that's the committee (CCCC) that decides it, so we feel we should have a seat at the table."
