Speaking at the Web Summit, John Collison, president and co-founder of Stripe said “We’re very excited to be working with GAAGO to enable Gaelic Games fans to have access to the latest games wherever they are in the world.

Stripe has provided us with the best way to accept payments online and we look forward to working with them long-term as we grow the business into the future” added Múirne Laffan.
