Dedication, Skill & Commitment
The stadium symbolises what can be achieved when a cohesive volunteer force, work towards a common goal. Rooted not just in the community around the stadium, Croke Park on match day represents a culmination of months and even years of hard work, dedication and commitment to local life and sport for over 2,200 clubs in all 32 counties of Ireland.
The colour, passion and atmosphere that engulfs the stadium over the summer months is only matched by the dedication, skill and athleticism of players on the pitch. This is all the more impressive, as the GAA has remained an amateur association since its foundation.
This volunteer ethos, which remains one of the most important aspects of the GAA, is carried throughout the stadium with teams of dedicated volunteers operating on match days and during special events to help ensure the safety and enjoyment of all patrons.
