Concussion Guidelines

Gaelic Games are contact sports. While collisions occur, they are not the primary focus of our games. The GAA has led the way in concussion awareness and education since the publication of the association’s first statement on concussion in 2007.

Since the publication of the most recent concussion management guidelines in 2013, extensive education has taken place at all levels of the association through various programmes and initiatives including seminars, workshops, information sheets, posters and an e-learning course available to players, members, administrators, referees and coaches.
