Dublin footballer Paul Flynn will replace Dermot Earley as the new Gaelic Players Association chief executive.
Flynn, who will begin in the role this September, has served on the GPA’s National Executive Committee and as a secretary in recent years. He said it was his intention to build on the work done already.
I am very proud and honoured to be taking up the position of CEO of the GPA at this time of enormous change and development for the game. The GPA has a fantastic member base who are passionate about the game and I will work hard to represent them and the Association. From personal experience I know the great work that the GPA does.
My vision is to build on the great work of our previous leaders and to engage the next generation of players. Players will be at the heart of all GPA decision making and the Association will remain unrelenting in its pursuit of members’ interests.
Flynn has experience as a commercial director with recruitment agency Lincoln Recruitment and will serve out a notice period before beginning in the role.
