Initiative to help GAA Members gain employment.


The ICBE Begin Again Programme was launched in 2010 and has already placed over 400 unemployed people in work placements. So far, over 240 of these have now returned to employment!


Galway GAA is working with the ICBE Begin Again Programme with the view to provide work placements for members of the GAA.  Possible opportunities exist in the following areas:


  • Coaching.
  • Health & Safety.
  • Manual Direct Labour.
  • Communications and Public Relations.
  • Strategic Planning.
  • And several other areas as would be identified by GAA Clubs.


There could also be an opportunity to access placements that exist in the wider business community.


The ICBE Begin Again programme provides participants with the opportunity to partake in a highly targeted and relevant work placement which is proven to be of great benefit and assistance in helping participants secure employment. The Programme is a mix of training, mentoring and project work.


Funded by the Labour Market Activation Fund, the Begin Again programme has enabled people who were experiencing both short term and long term unemployment gain that crucial foothold back into the workforce. To date more than 60% of participants have obtained employment, 19% have gained self employment or contracts with a further 5% re-entering the education system.


All participants taking part in the GAA / Begin Again programme must have availed of unemployment assistance from the Social Welfare for the period of three months. GAA / Begin Again participants retain all of their social welfare benefits during the work placement programme.


To apply for this Programme please follow these simple steps:


  1. Go to
  2. Click on the area marked “Participants”
  3. Click on “Apply online”
  4. Enter your all requested sections and attach your CV
  5. In the section headed “Preferred Work Placement Project” please state the following “Galway GAA member”, then add in any additional preferences you may have
  6. Press “Submit”


Let us help you to get you back to work by doing something you enjoy doing, developing your career and greatly increase your chances of getting a job!

If you do not have access to the Internet, or if you have any questions please do not hesitate to call Orla or Maureen on 091- 755736 and mention that you are a member of the GAA in Galway.
