WGPA have definitely improved conditions… Caoimhe Mohan speaking on SportsGirls Podcast

Speaking on this weeks SportGirls Podcast former Monaghan star Caoimhe Mohan was asked her opinion on the current work of the WGPA (Womens Gaelic Players Association) since their introduction. Caoimhe responded saying

“I feel like they have helped immensely with fundraising and grants they have definitely improved things”…

adding to that Nadine Doherty explained that she has known of one team that rental costs of their pitch was just north of €6,000 in which the WGPA grant covered that cost.

This is hugely positive information coming on the back of yesterday’s #20×20 campaign. In a time where it is easy to grab headlines with the negatives that happen in Ladies Sport, one must look at the bigger picture and see that there is great work already being done.

You can listen to the full podcast with Caoimhe, Nadine and Diane by downloading from iTunes, Spotify or Soundcloud – use search term “Sportstalk Podcasts”
