Episode 3

GAA Eile is a four part series, filmed over the summer championships of 2018 that takes a fresh look at the GAA and examines the worth and value of our national games. All-­‐Ireland winning captain Dara Ó Cinnéide asks the question, if there is an increasing commercial value to the games, how does this affect the intrinsic and traditional values of the GAA?

In Episode 3, All-­‐Ireland winning captain Dara Ó Cinnéide speaks to players and management involved with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and the Camógie Association in Cork, Donegal, Galway and Mayo. Despite putting in the same amount of work and commitment as their male counterparts, they do not get the same amount of recognition. Dara looks at the changes that have taken place in the sport over the past number of years and asks should the LGFA and Camóige Association be under the same umbrella of the GAA as the men’s games? Dara looks back on what happened to Mayo Ladies football during the summer and finds out what players and commentators want to see happening in the future.
