GAA players are being warned to stop using counterfeit hurling and camogie helmets immediately.

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission and the GAA have issued the urgent warning about all ‘Gola’ branded helmets.

They say the helmets pose a risk of serious injury to the face, head, and eyes.

The company Gola does not make helmets, and does not licence the Gola brand to any other company to make helmets.

However, counterfeit ‘Gola’ branding has been added to batches of substandard, retro-style helmets, with product safety inspections finding protruding screws and sharp edges.
