Was down walking the dog at the weekend at Musgrave and St Brides have done some job with the 2 pitches now - anyone know if they own the pitches outright Or do the council? the Changing rooms look like the same as Woodlands which is council...
No matches to Discuss!!!

I think the council still look after the grounds.

The many clubs who Rely on the social club for income will be getting in tight for the next while - Hope Govt or Croke will step up. Fundraising generally will be well done - tough times

same for us, its not a real source of income. we are thinking of ditching our licence to go for the lesser one of 12 or so days you can use it.

Our income was the lotto, club draw, academy and gym. All of them are now gone and we have only the Club Dunloy money coming in. tis scary times for the clubs.

Interesting question. We have all paid our insurances for the GAA, LGFA and Camogie association - if no games are played will anything get returned or will it be a case of thousands of pounds lost to insurance companies.

The camogie association asked - sorry demands -£350 up front before you can even register a player for your club. again if no games are played do clubs get it back?

I cant see any league games ever being played this year, championship at a push, but the reality is we could see a full wipe out.

Hard times ahead indeed for the clubs, on the plus side UK Gov grants etc may be available, we can postpone club fees and insurance to Croker. If we all save money wisely the paid club managers in SW will still get 80% of their salary while on furlough

Would they in turn be reducing or scrubbing their membership fees?

Thats true. all clubs must of paid prior to any of the leagues starting in any shape so everyone will have paid around £4000 at a min for the GAA player injury fund. the camogie is a different insurance (costs us around £2800) and then the LGFA is another insurance set up.

The registration fees are all paid as well with no one being allowed to play without it being done as well. Its alot of money we have all paid up front for a potential for no games to be played.

No - membership fees dont cover insurance and league fees in our club and I'd say Many. With Clubs loss of income members Will not expect that. The county has Saffron business Forum and CLub Aontroma going well and doesnt need to profit from the clubs - surely the GAA can do a deal with the insurnace people

Ye think? Thereís boys going to be getting it tight over the next while who could be doing with the few quid back. Remember that many clubs have a player membership at a much higher rate than a social membership. With no games being played, effectively everyone is a social member. If clubs are going to the county looking for a reduction/scrubbing of fees due to no games being played, it would be fairly hypocritical not to reciprocate that to its own members.

There will be many who have no issue paying anyway but please donít overlook those who will be struggling.
