    • RTÉ GAA Podcast: The great club v county debate
      On this week's podcast Donal Óg Cusack and Oisín McConville join Mikey Stafford and Rory O'Neill to debate the club v county divisions dominating GAA's return to play, and the GPA's role in modern Gaelic games.
    • What next for the GPA?
      The establishment and subsequent lobbying power of the Gaelic Players Association has done much to improve the lot of the once downtrodden inter-county player, but the organisation has an increasing number of critics as it evolves and attempts to find its natural space in the GAA ecosystem.
    • GAA ready to punish inter-county training breaches
      The GAA will not bring forward the 14 September date for inter-county teams to resume collective training and has called upon clubs to report county teams that breach that sanction.
