Mayo Fundraiser
« on: February 14, 2019, 12:14:48 PM »
Any idea how to get tickets for this, a lot of money in Mayo GAA, Ireland favourite team. A lot of money to spend on one code per year.

We can't all be as lucky as Dublin GAA and expect hand outs year in year out. "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche"

Is the ruby sponsor the 25k package, and emerald the 10k. That surely is putting the red above the green, a no-no in traditional Mayo GAA circles.

I'm sure New York and the NACB are delighted about this news.

Ah but not nearly as much as Dublin had to spend on building their own Stadium and the debt that came with that or the plan to build their own training center and the cost that will come with that? I am not even going to mention the travel expenses that Dublin GAA have to fork out to bring their players across the country for training which Mayo don't have to contend with or the fact that Mayo got €15.4m in development grants in 2018 compared to Dublin only getting €590k!!!! They GAA persecution of Dublin knows no bounds and it is amazing that the Dubs can field a team let alone win All Irelands to be honest!!

P.S just to correction one slight inaccuracy in your intelligent insightful post , Mayo do compete in hurling albeit in the Nicky Rackard Cup and Keith Higgins has won a Railway Cup for Connacht in both football and hurling. I thin k only Kilkenny and Cavan compete in only one code at intercounty level!!

In fairness most New York clubs playing budgets would dwarf all Mayo clubs playing budgets!!

Cavan do compete in hurling again and Kilkenny play in the junior championship in football.

Yes. Fundraising. It's not handouts from Croke Park. Geddit?

It’s an investment that will see Sam Maguire flying back to see them by Christmas.

Sorry not sure what your on about, this is about Mayo GAA fundraiser, I am not sure if its just for the Senior Football team or more than that, fair play to them if they can do it and get it, I just feel for say Leitrim, where Mayo have a large financial gain over them, which is unfair to the Leitrim's out there.

The running of the Dublin teams, from minor to senior, both codes, both genders is catered for from sponsorship and merchandising etc. Its not catered for from Development and coaching grants for for the betterment of children in the capital.

Not necessarily that they are stingy.
More that they don't need to do any fundraising given they don't have travel expenses worth worrying about plus no debt from developing a centre of excellence or
a proper ground.

Strangely, i don't think that's necessarily a good thing.
Putting your had in your pocket generates a stronger emotional connection.
