Toys out of the pram, eh?

Well done Dublin, Dublin GAA does not exist to subsidise other counties who massively mismanaged their finance and funding for years.

Dublin’s biggest source of income is development grants (around 2.5 million). They take in more than a million from that source than commercial income every year.

I wouldn’t say the GAA subsidies Dublin but they certainly support them to the same extent that they support whole provinces.

If you think Connacht is even getting a per capita amount of the grant money Dublin gets I want some of the ganja you’re smoking.

True

It's amazing the zealotry on display in even sunshine supporters' circles in Dublin. How can they not realise they are rapidly destroying the very competitions they covet so dearly?

I looked it up and zealotry is an actual word. Well done you.
