Welcome Cork GAA supporters to the Cairde Chorcaí website. Cairde Chorcaí was launched last year and our aim is to support Cork G.A.A. teams to succeed at the highest level.
Our board is comprised of passionate Cork supporters, a number of whom have represented Cork successfully in the past and are eager for Cork to recover to former glories. While the support for the teams is ultimately the responsibility of the Cork County Board and the respective Ladies’ County Boards, such are the financial demands in the modern era that there is a need for a body like Cairde Chorcaí.
Cairde Chorcaí comprises a group of passionate Cork supporters. We are bound by our passion for Cork GAA and we established this funding vehicle to help Cork GAA succeed.
The vision of Cairde Chorcaí is that all Cork inter-county teams will have top class training facilities, high performance supports and that underage coaching structures will be enhanced. Cairde Chorcaí will provide support supplementary to that currently provided by the County Boards.
Cairde Chorcaí is run on an entirely voluntary basis in a fully compliant and transparent manner. It will work with the County Boards to provide the supplementary supports for inter county teams and coaching structures. Funds will be raised by membership fees and fundraising initiatives in Ireland and through the Cork diaspora across the world.
Facilities for County Teams
Cairde Chorcaí is currently working with County Boards to provide additional long term training facilities.
Cairde Chorcaí will be financially supporting additional full time coaches in Cork.
High Performance Needs
Cairde Chorcaí are part funding the new High Performance Manager and will also help to fund the cost of additional High Performance initiatives.
Cairde Chorcaí are keen to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to contribute to this journey.
