Club Maith Lú is an unique accreditation scheme for GAA clubs in Louth. Those participating will be benchmarked against best practice standards across the full range of GAA activity and regulation. Any award will make a clear proven statement about the quality of the club and its members.
The scheme is an official Coiste Chondae promotion and is been organised by the County Development Committee. Adjudication ill be undertaken by independent personnel appointed by An Coiste Forbartha. Assessment will commence in March ’15 and results announced later in springtime. All Clubs will be assessed except where they indicate that they wish to opt out of the process.
