Strategic Review 2021
We are delighted to launch the Louth GAA Strategic Review. The process began in May 2020 and the remit was to assess where we are as a county, where we wanted to go and set out how we plan to get there.
Under the stewardship of Development Officer Derek Crilly and Operations Manager Francie McMullen, this review looks at ways Louth GAA can make realistic changes to its fortunes both on and off the field.
Our steering committee of Francie McMullen, Shane Lennon, Bob Doheny, Barry Watters, Bronagh McGrane, Colin Kelly, Mark Byrne and Ciaran Sloan contributed tremendously to this review and were ably supported by very active subcommittee members.
Our guiding principle was to gather as much information as possible before making any recommendations and we were delighted with the huge response and participation in our surveys, focus groups, interviews and all the interactions we had with various stakeholders.
Peter Fitzpatrick Chairperson of Louth GAA stated, “This is an exciting and ambitious plan that reflects six key focus areas, namely Primary and Post Primary School, Games Development, Academy and Player Pathway, PR/Communications, Finance and Fundraising and Infrastructure”. “It outlines realistic and attainable objectives for Louth GAA in the coming years, whilst placing emphasis on us all working together both at Management Committee level and Club level, to face our challenges and achieve success both on and off the pitch”.
Derek Crilly, Louth GAA Development Officer and Strategic Review Lead says, “We hope that the GAA people of Louth will support our recommendations and as a committee we will work hard to ensure that we reach the various objectives set out in report”.

Louth is a proud GAA county with many great volunteers involved at all levels that provide hugely important outlets within communities. To ensure long term success it is important that we put structures in place. We welcome feedback and input into our report and we fully expect this review to be a live document so that we can adapt to changes that will present themselves in the future.
