Watch: Wexford GAA Chairman Micheál Martin Speaks To Off The Ball

The Wexford GAA chairman was interviewed by Off The Ball lately…

Micheál Martin, who works as a principal and who is the current Wexford GAA Chairman, was speaking to Off The Ball following a high-profile incident with a referee.

He spoke about the proactive measures that Wexford GAA have taken since the incident; Wexford GAA have introduced club self-evaluation workshops, will be running a ‘respect the referee’ initiative, and aim to propose life-bans from the association for verbal and physical incidents with GAA referees in the future.

“It’s time for the clubs to hold up a mirror. To assess whether of our behaviours have been acceptable. The response we’ve got, is really good. The club workshops have been well-attended and there has been really good engagement. There’s a widespread acknowledgement that there are issues,” Martin said.

Interestingly, Martin also noted how Wexford GAA will work in conjunction with UCD to engage in a research project to investigate how to ensure that there will be long-lasting impacts of these new initiatives.
