If it is money and population based there is no point in reinventing the wheel.
The money should go to existing distribution points in the Pale, namely Dundalk, Drogheda United, St Patrick’s Athletic, Bohemians, Shelbourne etc

There may be some problems with the style of football played but this shouldn’t be a deal breaker especially with short kick outs. Over time the hand pass could be phased out.

So as well as having a population of around 750k (100k more than the 11 BMW) these 4 lazy Counties are going to get loads of €s to try and make a competitive Leinster Championship.
Only Meath have any tradition
Kildare 3 Provincial titles in over 80 years
Wicklow none ever
Louth 1* on the last 60.
Maybe they should give all the cash to the Biffos -or is it simply recognition that only Counties with large young populations will be able to compete for AIs in future.

*awarded to Meath.

I'll bite

Louth and Kildare have more All-Irelands than Roscommon. Kildare have have also more quarter-final & semi-final appearances than Roscommon in the last 20 years. The All-Ireland series is probably the fairest barometer. So if Kildare no tradition, does that mean the moldy yougart in my fridge has more tradition that Roscommon?

750k is a lot of potential 'customers'; Thats what they see them as!!

I'll bite back Dinny :D
Kildare AIs were won at a time we were still recovering from the Famines  (last one 1879/80) here in the West as were 2 of Louth's (one a walkover as Kerry wouldn't pay increased train fares).
If you go decades without winning then an ancient tradition becomes irrelevant.
But seriously it seems the GAA's €€€s will be going where the young population is growing. Was reading the other day that Sallins has 2,000 children under 12!!
There's hardly that in Co Roscommon.

Sure we don’t need any of that fancy highfalutin funding over on the western seaboard. We can survive on sea air and ‘atin shtones!

Ye don't have to compete with the internet.
If you were any use you'd be playing.
