*(5) Croke Park, in consultation with the GPA, must address the fixture crisis currently affecting club and county players.

*(6) The GPA calls on Croke Park to lift the ban on Club Energise with immediate effect and adopt a policy of full commercial cooperation with the players’ body (ie: Playstation, sticker book collections etc.)
