GAA's record on child protection
Published 18/03/2010 | 05:00
Ciaran McKane of the Catholic University School in Dublin questions the wisdom of the GAA in implementing certain child welfare and safety measures for our members who are under 18 years of age (Letters, March 9).
The contents of his letter could be described as being at least disingenuous and will only cause further grief and hurt to many people who suffered pain and abuse, so vividly reported in recent years.
It is a gross exaggeration and a disservice to thousands of volunteers in the GAA to infer that we have introduced 'precautions' of late as a result of the Murphy report or, indeed, any other report.
