Would parish rule solve a lot of this joining up shit.? Also underage some clubs do very little work so how are you going to have numbers at minor if there don't come through U11/13 and 15.

Parish Rule would clean it up considerably

It might also force the clubs who couldnt be arsed developing juveniles to get their act together knowing they cant bed hop any more

There is a "parish rule" in place already. Players (8, 9, 10 year olds starting out) have to play for a club in their parish with exceptions for school and parentage.
Ballypickas have a huge issue with it as their players traditionally come from more than one parish.

Good interview with Peter O Neill on Laois today. He mentioned over 20 clubs have signed up for the games promotion officers with 8 coming on board before end of the next year. Anyone know what clubs have signed up?

“Shur we can’t compete with Offaly”

Even though they have a smaller population than Laois and 8 fewer clubs

We're wasting our time I'm afraid. This CB will never bring us to where we need to be.

The benefits of having your counties teams all knocked out of their respective championships early I guess. Saved the county a fortune.

On a serious note-making that amount of profit is a sign that the county board are not investing enough in the development of GAA within the county. Obviously you do not run into debt but equally you should not be sitting on a large wad of money that could be invested wisely to help improve standards within the county.   

Is anyone else surprised at the fact that the Coaching and Games Development Expenses was only €14,854. Surely that figure should be x10 that or am I wrong in thinking that?

You're not wrong. I actually couldn't even guess what the strategy is at this stage. I suppose to them it's an achievement of sorts.

I think the budget for that in Offaly over the same 11 month period was over €110k

This wouldn’t include GDA wages etc
