Stop unlawful discrimination in the GAA: boycott their Sponsors

This petition made change with 70 supporters!


My Dad is a loyal Tyrone GAA supporter.  The kind of fan you will see at the side of a pitch in the depths of winter cheering on club and county.  He is a GAA season ticket holder.  He is also a blue badge holder.

On 12th July, we received an email from GAA season tickets to say that he, along with all other loyal season ticket holders, would not be seated at their fixture on 21st July rather that they were to be sent to the terraces without any consideration of the GAA’s statutory obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.

I contacted the GAA via Twitter and email without response: twitter.com/clairemconroy/status/1017473972101898240

I contacted their Sponsors via Twitter to highlight the issue without response: twitter.com/clairemconroy/status/1018936020652449795

This petition is not about my Dad: 

  • This petition is about the GAA complying with their statutory obligations;
  • This petition is about the GAA having respect for their loyal supporters;
  • This petition is about all of us!

I will, therefore, be boycotting the goods and services provided by their Sponsors until such times as they do the right thing and #givehughieaseat

I would ask that you join with me and do the same. Please show your support, sign this petition and share on your social media to encourage the GAA to do the right thing.  Thank you.
