The fledgling women's GAA players union has been handed a significant boost after it was announced that a major corporation has come on board as a financial backer.

The Women's Gaelic Players Association (WGPA) was set up last January to support its members in improving standards across the board and with the support of PwC, those enhancements will be further aided.

PwC have been in partnership with the GAA/GPA since 2012 and it is expected that the WGPA will reap similar rewards in the coming years.

The partnership coincides with the 'Behind the Player' campaign, which is aimed at promoting WGPA members in Irish society.

"We are delighted to have the support of PwC as we work to establish ourselves as a voice for our members," Chairperson of the WGPA, Aoife Lane, said.

"High performance sport helps to set up good habits for life, which places top ladies footballers and camogie players as ideal role models in Irish society."
