There is definitely some anomaly with Dublin only accounting €54k in fundraising. According to the Examiner they took in roughly €40k in one morning's breakfast so that leaves just €14k raised in the rest of the year. I suppose we should be thankful they are so lazy when it comes to this stream of revenue as they have more than enough as it is.

You're naive as a newborn if you think they correctly accounted that figure.

So are you saying it is a possibility that they have even more money that they are not declaring? What could possibly be the reason for not declaring money raised? Could it be that they don't want people finding out what they spend some money on? Apologies if I am naive.

Most counties’ reported accounts are a crock of shît and use all sorts of insane tricks to make them appear as they wish them to. We reported a surplus this year, for example, but we also got an advance on grant money due next year that totally sckews the figures.

It suits Dublin very well to under-report what they’ve fundraised.

It might skew the figures but it’s not a fabrication syferus so not sure you’ve proved anything with the Roscommon example.

The fundraising figure in Dublin’s accounts should be followed up on by the national press as it doesn’t make much sense.

Hilarious reading the reply's. Rename the thread to the crying game.

One point though, perhaps Dublin don't need to fundraise due to other income streams........... Most logical explanation.

Again, reminder, EIR Sport on Christmas eve, Dublins say, enjoy gentlemen.

Aye, including the 1.3 million they receive from the GAA directly. Fair play to them :)

Of course they don't have to fund raise. Sure ye have access to the GOLDEN GOOSES to lay the golden eggs.


Anyway, you have gone all quiet, with no reply's to Cork and Mayo spending more on preparation of their respective  teams?

As for Eir Sport! Don't have it and I've better thing to be doing on Christmas eve.

Don't expect an answer to that anytime soon.

I queried his McGeeney assertion and he disappeared for weeks. Then he claimed he never saw my question. But Anton down the pub can back up his claims.

All i want is to see a link to the published Dublin accounts.
Here is the latest Mayo one (page 7 showing the best summary)... http://sportlomo-userupload.s3.amazonaws.com/uploaded/galleries/21_uploaded/e72a9d45499535c4e5e22e637a12d314e9330af0.pdf

Why do Dublin not publish there's? Or if they do, then i'd be much  obliged if you could add the link to this discussion thread

Well they’re consistent about not doing much fundraising anyway, it’s a good thing most in the GAA have been a little more proactive historically or Gaelic games never would have got off the ground at all.

I believe it might be different at Dublin club level though in fairness but incredible to see how lazy the county board have been with fundraising.

Sure they don't have to.
Free use of a National Stadium, buckets of money from Central GAA, multi National sponsorship, players live no more than a €5 bus/tram/train ride away.....

They needn't spend a fiver. They can all drive there in a top of the range 172 Subaru, supplied free of charge by a "Partner."
