National - How many GAA players in Ireland - Adult & Juvenile?

  • 1
 

Trying to settle an argument here on the amount of GAA players in Ireland. Both hurling and football, and both male and female.
(Administrators/ coaches excluded) Actual players


We are getting varying numbers

So, two questions

1. How many adult GAA players in Ireland?

2. How many underage/ juvenile players in Ireland?


Any help is a much obliged

The figures are in here but this is the 2008 report and not sure if there is a later one:

I'm not much good at estimating crowds but there must be about 17,000,000 out there!

I know there's around 7,000 clubs registered with the GAA but not sure how many of them would be in Ireland itself.

120,000 players in Ulster alone according to the Ulster Council's current development strategy. I assume the equivalent strategies for the other provinces will include their figures.
