It has been a massive point of contention and it’s rearing its head once again as people have hit back at GAA for cashless turnstiles.
Age Action, which are Ireland’s leading advocacy organization for older people, has called on the GAA to reconsider its mandate on all ticketed events in order to help the older supporter. It has gathered so much steam now that Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has come out and said that he believes there should be “some provision” made.
Ireland South MEP and ex-GAA President Sean Kelly was a recent guest on KCLR Live and said the GAA needed to go slower on the implementation:
“Even if they gave a lead in time for it, if they said over the next three or four years we’re going to be moving gradually to this, but bring it in kind of automatically and having no alternative”
“I don’t see why they have to do it if there was a necessity to do it, and there was no alternative, let’s say, fine”
“The GAA is about everybody.”
