Are you allowed to rent out pitches to soccer/rugby clubs? Or does the association ban that?
There is some doubt on that but I think it depends on whether the facilities are "vested" in the GAA.
I believe that means if they are totally owned by the GAA whereas there are grounds owned b a community association. The GAA may be the only sports organisation in the parish which will use the pitches whether due to there being no other sports organisation in the parish or thy have their own pitch. If they are GAA vested grounds they cannot be used for rugby or soccer.
I read somewhere that Munster rugby had to stop using the very fine facilities at Mallow GAA for this reason. I dont think there is any objection to a bunch of lads hiring an all weather or indoor pitch to play soccer as long as it isn't booked in a soccer clubs name
