Yes it is as I wonder what power he has.I feel it is a figurehead position and has no real power and was wondering others views on it. I am just wondering what is the diffeence between the president and Liam  Mulvihil.
Who has more power?

When you say he has no real power to an extent thats true as the GAA is democratically run.
Its a good thing IMO as it means one crackpot president cant change the association permanently for the worse.
I think its dangerous to use the word "power" in this job as it suggests with it he can do what suits him when he wants.
The president is there to serve the GAA members more so than control them.

I thought it was the Inner circle that had all the power Gael?

The Gael is an idiot! (oh, and he takes no prisioners as well!)
Knowledge only brings fear.

Thanks Gael, but I'll decline that offer.
Doesnt sound like a fun weekend task!
