Breaffy GAA has been playing its own important and central role in Breaffy since its formation in 1953, creating numerous memories and placing itself at the heart of the community.
This document adds to this, it brings with it a sense of goodwill, renewed optimism as well as continuing to build on community solidarity.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone involved in bringing this plan to actualisation.
Social media plays an ever increasing and important role in the organisation and promotion of our Games. It provides an engaging forum through which the GAA community can connect. The GAA Social Media Policy and Guidelines have been developed to inform our community about using social media so people feel enabled to participate, while being mindful of the standards expected by the GAA and other entities such as the Data Protection Commissioner.
The contents provide practical guidance to allow all parties to benefit from the use of social media and to have fun online, while minimising potential risks and protecting everyone involved. It also gives practical guidelines and advice for Clubs and Counties on social media channels, illustrating many specific related risks and provides solutions. It is important to recognise that each person is individually responsible for what they post online. The information that follows is designed to provide guidance to GAA Units and members on how to communicate appropriately and lawfully online. The GAA does not accept responsibility for the online activities of individual members or GAA Units.
