The family of the late great Dermot Earley Snr believe a new initiative in his honour can help the next generation of young Irish leaders make their mark in the world.

The Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative, brought together by the GAA, Foróige, and National University of Ireland Galway, got underway yesterday in Aodh Ruadh GAA club Ballyshannon and Four Masters GAA club in Donegal Town.

The Initiative gives young people the opportunity to take part in Foróige’s Leadership for Life programme which has been customised for this partnership with the GAA.

Donegal GAA footballer Karl Lacey spoke at yesterday’s launch.
