ORourke getting it from RTE, The Sunday Indo and Paddy Power. Looks like he's just a token GAA contributor for each as he'd have surely got the road for his negativity . For the gambling crowd , he couldn't pick his nose so maybe they're happy enough with him. Class A hypocrite.

O'Rourke needs all these sources of Income along with being the Principal of a School to cover bad debts from investments during the boom!  :-\

I found it a bit hypocritical that a failed property developer  was putting forward a socialist GAA model.

Dublin and to a lesser degree, Kerry with a huge conglomerate behind them will always have financial advantages but if the likes of Tyrone, Donegal, Mayo can be competitive then why can't the likes of Kildare, Cork, Meath, Antrim, Galway. If the likes of Monaghan can win Ulster titles and be competitive with anyone outside of Dublin, then there's no reason why Cavan, Sligo, Laois, Westmeath etc can't. If Fermanagh can make an All Ireland quarter final and play the best team in the country and not disgrace themselves then what is stopping the likes of Leitrim, Carlow or Longford (who in fairness equip themselves well with what they've got) from doing similar.

There is a finance imbalance that certainly needs to be addressed but too many counties try and use it as an excuse when similar counties to them are getting the best out of themselves with similar resources.
