Guess who was in NY for their annual “Dinner” this past weekend.
Absolutely disgraceful, at a time when the NY GAA are in the midst of trying to finance the rebuilding of Gaelic Park. Sums it all up.

Would love to hear the comments of the GPA defenders on the prior few pages on this latest event.

There does seem to be a strong whiff of junket to some of these trips - is there an element of going on trips to the US to raise money to go on trips to the US?

It's the whiff of pure begrudgery and ignorance on this thread that is hilarious.

You should read more Joe Brolly. You'll lap up his lies like the sheep you are.

The GPA are the driving force behind USA fundraising trips and have been for half a century. Ha Ha  ;D ;D

“We’re audited by Deloitte, a big four firm"

A telltale sign of an outfit with too much money
Yeah, better to get a small time crowd that won't raise too much suspicion. Damned if you do and all that.

Google "auditing scandals" and you'll find Deloitte way ahead of any "small time crowd".

Trying to figure out how to reply to that. Could you explain what point you're making with that post please?

Definitely not, just nonsensical.

An auditing scandal, as you might define it, is likely to have involved one of the big five accountancy firms as, to merit it being a scandal, it would probably need to involve an entity who engages a firm of such a size.

By your logic, the GPA shouldn't use one of these firms because they have been or are more likely to have been involved in a scandal. You seem to be suggesting (in the absence of you explaining your post) that the GPA would be better off hiring a small firm of accountants who haven't been found to be in a scandal as they're not large enough to make such headlines.

Or maybe there's something cryptic in there after all?

No, what I said was very clear. The GPA shouldn't be using them because their fees are astronomical, to the level that only very large companies, multinationals and those with very deep pockets use them. Your red herring that their work should be more dependable than smaller firms was and is easily rebuffed.

"A telltale sign of an outfit with too much money"
"Google "auditing scandals" and you'll find Deloitte way ahead of any "small time crowd"."

No mention of fees in either of those two posts yet you feel what you say is very clear despite you deciding not to clarify when I invited you to.

And I didn't say their work would be more dependable as you can see.........very clearly.

Its only select members... or are they even members if they are full time employees... that get to go on the junkets.
