Rory O’Connor talks Wexford | Davy Fitzgerald | wanting more | finding an edge

Shane Stapleton sat down with the Wexford star as the Gaelic Players Association launched their Student Report 2019.

It revealed the latest insights into the lives of over a third of its members, who are third-level students.
63% of the GPA’s student-members are 21 – 24 years of age and 93% are full-time students, and all of them face the specific challenge of managing the demands of being an inter-county player alongside their academic commitments and personal lives.
The GPA Student Report 2019 highlights the challenges experienced by GPA student-members, some of which were also highlighted in the most recent ESRI study published in 2018 on the demands on all senior, inter-county players. This report also provides actionable GPA recommendations to help student-members achieve better-balanced lifestyles so they can thrive on and off the field.
