Some difference in revenue between 2017 & 2018, Galways was about 1.2m more in 2018, now some of the increases are easily explained whilst some are just baffling and its hard not to point the finger.

Its just ridiculous that an organisation that has generates revenue of about 5 million didn't have any full time administrator overseeing finances.
Agreed
It's time for full time administrators in most counties, in fact some counties could share one. E.g. longford/westmeath

A bit of a Roman Abramovich scenario going on here, lots of double standard posters.

Its not pleasant having your laundry aired in public is it... especially for everyones favourite county, the arent we great brigade.

You see it across the country where individuals put money into their county. Declan Kelly Tipperary, JP McManus Limerick, Bertie Ahern and the €5m to Dublin.

As i said Double standards, At least other counties can put it to use, not a hope in Mayo. Dont even have the competence to accept free financial gifts.

I suppose it's difficult when you have actual volunteers trying to run the county board. There are several full time administrators in your own county for example.

Then take money from donors and hire some people.
Unfortunately money from donors is not a fixed income that can be budgeted to pay the annual salary or salaries for full time administrators let alone a CEO position. The only fixed income outside of gate receipts for a county like Mayo is sponsorship and most of this money is sucked up by day to day stuff like insurance, debt repayments, team expenses and coaching. Team expenses are the most frustrating since stuff like travel expenses and backroom teams to stay relevant or just compete are spiraling out of control but sponsorship and gate receipts depend on the level of success of a county team so it is a catch 22 situation!!

And they are out of control because you don't have the people in place to control it... Structures first, sun holidays second.

Talk about ignorance!  Ya, maybe it's the sun holidays.

Or..... maybe it might have something to do with the fact that the Mayo county board have to pay 33 grand every month to pay for the debt on our county ground, something the Dubs will never have to worry about as neutral Croke Park is handed over to them.

Also, unlike the dubs, a large section of our players and backroom team have to travel the breadth of the country a couple of times a week which could have something to do with the large expenses bill.

Or maybe it's just that Dublin have better people in place ::)
Mayo volunteers are only worth a quarter of the Dubs lads

Youse couldn’t hold out for 20 minutes....
Sure it's not about winning,  they had a cool banner at the game today, that's all that matters.
Unlike other clubs who defend racists.
And wear t shirts about it

Joe would be wise to rest the players who started today against the Russians. Sexton should be able to start the next day. Carty is not bad but he is no jonny Sexton.
Not much you can do when the pack is going backwards

In any other tier 1 nation Best would have been retired 3/4 years ago, and if he wanted more rugby he'd be gone off abroad for a while

Far too much loyalty to players over the hill or imports.
The lack of squad development is laughable in some key positions and knowing for 2 years what sort of game Japan were going to play and the warm weather conditions over there, to start such a team 6 days after the first game was amateur

Why do Mayo need a COE when there's already one beside Ballyhaunis?
Will it be the only county in Ireland with two COEs?

Everton banner in Hillsborough last night

Fair play. Nice touch
Most Everton fans I know are decent. Its lads like manfromdelmonte that give them a bad name.
Will Liverpool honour the ticket packages fans had bought off Thomas cook?

Might a lot less Norwegians at games in castle greyskull for a while

Huh? I wasn’t aware that I had been making any sort of a point. ;D
I gave a  few pertinent stats, pertinent to the current state of football in Leinster, and left it up to the readers to draw their own conclusions.
It’s very obvious that you have done that and you see no connection at all between that fact that Dublin started getting massive injections of cash in 2004 and the fact that it has won 15 out of a total of 16 titles since then.


So Dublin won Leinster in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

I would love know how exactly the games development funding money that we got from 2004 delivered these 5 Leinsters in a row? It could hardly be coincidence! Could it???
look at the counties who won before that though, and after (I'm giving 2010 to Louth)

would never happen now

GAA Discussion / Re: Dublin v Kerry All Ireland Final 2019

Neutral viewpoint

Clifford done very well after a bit of a wobble in opening 10 mins. Him and Sean O'Shea are certainly for real. Great players. Kerry will be around for awhile going forward alright.

Keane masterstroke, got all his tactics spot on you have to say. But what can he change going forward?

The Kerry penalty wasn't a penalty for me, mattered not but maybe was a contribution in the end to Coopers red card.....looked like Gough couldn't wait to get it out.....on the other hand he let Tom O'Sullivan off with something not a million miles away which would have been his red card. I'd be feeling sore if I was Cooper this morning - his prior is irrelevant, he probably had this coming but for me he was harshly done by yesterday. Aiden O'Shea would have a penalty a game if there was consistency.

Kerry keep ball in the last five was criminal, too many turn overs.....they say you have to lose one to win one, that experience of yesterday will stick to them for the rest of their footballing careers - saying that Dublin were insatiable, unbelievable fitness and effort from them.

Strange to take MDMA off at the time?

Paddy Small had a nightmare, you'll be lucky to see him in replay......Berno......would he have taken those efforts on? Gavin will surely be furious.

Connolly had his chance of glory, didn't get it but he won the ball back on the halfway line for the equaliser didn't he? The type of unstylish contribution but every bit as important.

If Rock hadn't have started his run to final free off the pitch, would that have seen him nail the final score?

Great game between two great counties - every bit the final, I have to say I was expecting Dublin to win easy.....maybe they were well on their way before the red but....great to have another game to look forward to!
kerry needed to keep the ball, but they had their extra man in the full forward line, when they needed the extra player to carry the ball out of defence
