County Iontach is GAA Handball's support programme for County Handball Boards.

What is County Iontach?

County Iontach is GAA Handball's support programme for County Handball Boards, identifying a list of good practice guidelines for County Boards to use as a template to run efficiently and effectively. It is a build on to our Club Iontach Accreditation Scheme. A comprehensive list of appendices and templates has been developed for County Boards to avail of and reduce workload (see bottom of page).
