Today, the GAA launched its official page on Facebook in the presence of Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael, Criostóir Ó Cuana and 2011 All-Ireland winning Dublin footballer, Cian O’Sullivan.

The GAA is asking all members and supporters to answer a global GAA call and ‘like’ OfficialGAA on Facebook to unlock access to exclusive news, updates, competitions, and more throughout the year.

As part of the launch, and to demonstrate the GAA’s commitment to the whole area of social media, Dublin football defender Cian O’Sullivan held a live Twitter chat through @officialgaa. Check out #GAAQandA for all the questions and answers.

Keeping up to date with what’s happening in the GAA world through social and digital media has never been easier. With nearly 17,000 followers on Twitter @officialgaa brings the latest news, match updates and results direct to its followers.

Apps across three smartphone platforms, iPhone, Android and Nokia also give members and supporters access to the latest news, videos and match tracker updates for key games.

GAA Director of Communications Lisa Clancy said: “Social media now plays an important role for the GAA in engaging with our members and supporters. We are now asking every GAA member, club, player, official, media across the world to “like us” on Facebook and follow us on twitter in order to connect the GAA globally."

Dublin footballer, Cian O’Sullivan added: “Everyday communication through the various different social media platforms is now common practice for so many people and the GAA’s presence on Facebook will further enhance its popularity I am sure”.

“I look forward to keeping up to speed with all things GAA through Facebook, in addition to the information provided through Twitter and gaa.ie”
