GAA Team Structure

The GAA is run as a pyramid administration with its controlling influence permeating right down to the 2,500 clubs which are often based on local areas, parishes or educational institutions.

The clubs play for local county championships and if successful also for the All Ireland Club Championship on Saint Patrick's Day. Club players may earn the right to play for their county, one of thirty two, which play the All Ireland Series, culminating in the final at Croke Park in September. Players for the Counties may represent their Province, Leinster, Munster, Ulster and Connaught which play for the Railway Cup.

A further Post secondary Educational Institution competition is also played as the Third Level. Club teams may include teams from senior to Under-10 as well as Primary and Secondary School competitions.

Teams are also outside Ireland in Australia, NZ, North America, Africa and Europe.
