The GAA has announced its list of official charities for the year ahead.
Five charities from around the country and representing a range of different causes were selected by the Association to be charity partners for this year.
The charities were unveiled at a special photo call at Croke Park earlier today.
The charities are;
- Mayo/Roscommon Hospice Foundation
- Cavan/Monaghan Palliative Care Fund
- Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation
- Concern Worldwide
- Kerry Hospice Foundation
Each of the designated charities will receive a €20,000 donation from the GAA.
This is part of an on-going GAA initiative stretching back to 2010 that has seen the GAA select a number of specific charitable organisations and foundations each year in a bid to assist them in raising awareness about their work and also champion them in their fund-raising efforts throughout the coming year.
