    GAA hopes to keep players with jobs drive

    By Noreen Bowden | March 23, 2009

    The GAA is working to prevent the emigration of its players through a jobs drive, reports the Irish Independent.

    The Gaelic Players’ Association has started a jobs board website to link up players with job vacancies, while Limerick GAA has started a directory of players outlining their job skills in the hope that employers may see their potential.

    GPA chief Dessie Farrell said yesterday that “The next couple of months will be very telling and once the Championships begin you will have a better gauge of what players will be available and whether, because of the recession, names are missing from squads.”
