Where has Zulu gone! I miss him when it comes to defending Dublins Financial backing.

Sure there is nothing to defend.

As highlighted above, The one i would like to see in caps on expenditure of inter county teams or all teams recieve the same allocated amount from Croke Park per month, year, competition etc.

Dublin I would say is one of the least supported county teams in Ireland.  36000 (assume 25000 Dublin supporters is less than 2% of the population of greater Dublin) for a Leinster semi final were most supporters can get walk, hop on a bus, the dart, luas to Croke Park is very low compared to say Leitrim bringing 10000 (1 in 3 people) to the division 4 league final.

This is also correct, there is a hardcore fooball support of about 15-25K, it varies, then you will have the selective match fan, then you have the event junkies.

Thats why when the Spawell stadium was in discussion, it was only a capicity of 25K.

Rovers play Bohs tonight, Derby game loads of interest....4 Inter-county teams in Dublin would similarly generate a lot of interest. County DLRD would be hated immediately by the other three counties.

Saw this on Wiki

Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown (Irish: Dún Laoghaire–Ráth an Dúin[2]) is a county in Ireland. It is part of the Dublin Region in the province of Leinster.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%BAn_Laoghaire%E2%80%93Rathdown

To the Dublin GAA community and hardcore support, there will only be one team, personally i would never support a Dublin regional team, if it was split id pack in the support, focus more on club.

how many new GAA clubs have been established in Dublin since 2001?
clubs are actually folding or amalgamating

The last big senior  club started in Dublin was Castleknock. 1998. There are smaller clubs formed in junior level like Ranelagh gaels i think founded around 2003.

There is a lot of amalgamting at underage level due to player numbers, nothing at adult level although there is talk of certain clubs coming together, our country cousins tend to keep clubs afloat at adult level.

Dublin are not miles ahead of everybody at hurling so would split only applied to football

Sure it only matters when your winning.

This thread pops up a couple of times a year. Dublin will never be split gentlement so you will have to deal with it.

Do you think if Jim Gavin and the Dublin footballers part ways this autumn would Dublin be.as good next year? In my opinion they wouldn't.

I think your right.

My biggest fear in sport is the day Jim Gavin steps down, I pray and hope he does a Brian Cody on it and is there for a long long time.

Any ideas of the final figures here from this fundraiser, Mayo spend the most in the country on the senior fooball preparations, which is way more that dual counties spend on two teams?

Do you have to pay taxes on this money when being transferred back to Ireland?

GAA president John Horan from Dublin has said the chief reason for Dublin's dominance is the work of Dublin's voluntary coaches and not the funding Dublin has received over the past decade.

https://www.independent.ie/sport/gaelic-games/dublins-success-not-down-to-money-gaa-president-john-horan-defends-jim-gavins-men-38211085.html

Yes volunteers in Kildare & Meath, your volunteering efforts are shit, you must work harder. It is funny how the GAA President from Dublin refuses to acknowledge any of the advantages Dublin have. It's f**king embarrassing at this stage.

Good man Dublin's John Horan. The best line was

''These things go in cycles and I'm quite sure with the obvious improvement that's coming in both Kildare and Meath that Leinster will come back in time to be competitive."


Dublin have had some cycle of dominance in Leinster? 15 years is an impressive cylcle.

15 years, a marvelous achievement, just shows what hard work by volunteers can achieve.

Does this include splitting the Dublin Hurler into 4? and underage? or clubs team not allowed to compete in outside of Dublin or is it just the footballers because they are winning?
The hurlers were split into two before, for a different reason. Same with Down.
Overall, the hurlers are more open to experimenting with structures. There effectively isn't any true provincial championship in hurling any longer, and its arguably better for it.

I agree, the football championship structure needs to replaced, Senior , inter, junior, like the nearly every sporting competition in the world, there are different levels.


Enjoy:
