As 2020 played havoc with us, we adapted as best we could. The tougher the year was, the more resilient we became. If this was to be the ‘Toughest Summer’, then we would look to celebrate the GAA and its values, and tell the story of how the Gaelic Game was at the epicentre of the fightback.
In the first few weeks of the first lockdown, 9,000 GAA club members provided support for almost 35,00 people. For long periods, even though club gates closed and games ceased, club chairpersons, players and volunteers were never busier. It was then we saw how we needed each other more than ever.
