The Mater Hospital Foundation has been selected as one of the GAA’s charity partners for 2024

The GAA has announced its list of charity partners for 2024.

Following a formal application process, four charities delivering work across a broad range of causes and important social issues were selected by the Association. In place since 2008, the GAA charity partner process has now delivered more than €1.5m to over 50 charities.

The charities were unveiled at a special photo call at Croke Park. They are:

  • The Mater Hospital Foundation
  • Hugh’s House
  • The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland, and
  • Ruhama

Each of the four charities will receive a donation from the GAA in addition to opportunities to raise awareness about the important work they undertake.

Uachtarán CLG Jarlath Burns said: “We are delighted to confirm the four charity partners we will be supporting for 2024 and we look forward to engaging with them in the months ahead in an effort to try and further bolster the positive impact they have in the communities they serve across the island.

“While this support comes in the shape of a financial contribution, we also hope to be able to assist in profiling the good work they do and further enhance their standing and appreciation of the excellent work they undertake for the benefit of others.”

Speaking about the partnership Mary Moorhead, Mater Hospital Foundation Chief Executive said, “The Mater Hospital Foundation is honoured to be chosen as a GAA Charity Partner for 2024. The Mater Hospital and Croke Park are two vitally important national organisations, both deeply rooted in north Dublin city, and have enjoyed a close relationship for many decades. Partnerships like these empower us to continue our work to support those who attend the Mater, while also caring for and supporting our nurses and doctors who work tirelessly for patients every day.

“Working together is also a wonderful opportunity to highlight the importance of exercise and fitness for the health and wellbeing of the Irish people. We look forward to building on our close relationship with the GAA and raising awareness of our shared commitment to caring for the community.”
