2024 GAA & Specsavers Social Initiative – Allianz League Match Day Trip

We are delighted to be rolling out the GAA & Specsavers Social Initiative again in 2024. This partnership with Specsavers Local Stores aims to encourage a connection and re-connection between local GAA Clubs and older and more vulnerable people in the community.
Feedback from clubs and counties has highlighted the popularity of a match day trip for older and more vulnerable people and that a trip organised specifically for this group generated a sense of excitement for them. Attending inter-county matches and being seated in a designated area made them feel important, remembered, and included.  Invitees said the experience of being amongst a crowd of supporters was enjoyable and entertaining, and opened the possibility of them forming or re-forming a connection with their local club.
Specsavers Local Stores are providing a €500 contribution towards a Match Day Trip for older and more vulnerable persons to GAA Allianz League match.  If your club is interested in participating in the 2024 GAA & Specsavers Social Initiative – Allianz League Match Day Trip please submit an Expression of Interest by clicking on the image below.
Expression of Interest Form Closes on 22nd December 2023 at 12 noon
Please note: The submission of an Expression of Interest does not guarantee club selection. A review committee will select clubs and pair them with local stores. Clubs will be notified of the committee’s decision no later than 17th January 2024 if they have been selected to participate. If selected to participate clubs will be provided with a 2024 GAA Specsavers Social Initiative Match Day Trips Information Booklet – which will include guidance on steps and actions to support organisation of the trip.
Selected clubs must have a Designated Coordinator that will be the point of contact for the 2024 GAA Specsavers Social Initiative. The Designated Coordinator will liaise with the County Board and a member of the Wilson Hartnell Team (Specsavers Local Stores Representatives) in the organisation of the Match Day Trip.
Important: Tickets for Allianz League Games must be organised through the usual club mechanism used for county matches. They are not available from participating Specsavers Stores; Wilson Hartnell or Croke Park for this initiative.
