Hi Linda,

Thank you for sharing this with you. I think many communities around the country would share similar thoughts. Areas that never had a refugee population have seen numbers grow over the past year. The GAA has played such a key role in providing supporting and welcoming refugees into communities. In my own locality, initiatives have been organised to secure boots, hurls, helmets, etc. as well as offering free entry to summer camps. I know just how appreciative people are of the welcome they have received.

Respecting the culture of where they have come from, as well as offering them the opportunity of sampling some of our culture is something we have done so well across so many communities recently.
