Yawn.  That money doesn't go to the intercounty team, as  has been pointed out many times here.

So because the illegal €1M a year to Dublin GAA  didn't go directly to intercounty players then there was no unfair advantage?  Thanks for clarifying.

No problem at all with Dublin struggling for the next few years. Will only serve in the long run to highlight how special the 6 in a row was. Will not be equalled again in our lifetimes.

Yes. Illicitly syphoned off by Bertie under the table during the boom

I never agreed with Dublin GAA receiving all those funds but it's hardly illegal.

You are not a bit dramatic.

If the €1M a year of taxpayers money was given legally it would have been known about at the time. It wasn't.

Throwing money at Dublin the last two years didn't help them. Maybe that's the comparison.

2 AI semi finals isn't exactly a failure.

The FAI were always going to.come off the naughty step and get funding restored.

Dublin intermediate and junior representatives in Leinster were beaten by Louth and Wexford teams would have thought these grades would be very strong in Dublin?

Dont they have a Senior A and B ahead of those?
Are they 33rd and 49th best teams?

Yeah they do. Am All Ireland Intermediate title would have a better ring to it then a Senior B Championship.

If they were putting their 17th and 33rd clubs in and sweeping up the Intermediate and Junior titles there would be plenty complaining.
If you look at Kerry at the other extreme where their 9th club is going into Intermediate.

And they’ve have every right to do so if they wished. St.Vincent’s won their second tier this year. Cuala last year. They’d be hoovering up all-Ireland intermediates.
