This sounds like Mayo

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2019/11/13/raymond-poulidor-cyclist-known-eternal-second-stole-hearts-french/

Raymond Poulidor, who has died aged 83, was a cyclist who, had his career not coincided with those of Jacques Anquetil and Eddie Merckx, would surely have won a clutch of Tours de France; as it was, “the Eternal Second” became even better loved than his two rivals.
His duels with Anquetil particularly caught the imagination of the French people. Anquetil, with his air of aloof superiority, was the supreme tactician, a master of the time trial who always seemed to ride within himself and suffer less than other riders (that was an illusion, he insisted).

More craic.

That said, if the geezer isn't a paid up member, he isn't a paid up member...

The 'geezer' is a well known and respected journalist here in Mayo. If he didn't pay by March 31st then he hasn't a leg to stand on I know, but you'd think the procedure would be explained by whoever to him.

He seems well aware of the procedure, but based on his comments I wonder how many of the current board were fully compliant when they got elected.

On the face of it, it seems pretty straightforward; either Gallagher was a paid up member on March 31st or he wasn't. But if that is the only issue, it's hard to see how a respected journalist would be prepared to fork out a wad of dosh to fight a case he has no hope of winning.
Right now, we have only heard one side of the story but I don't think we have got the full story-not yet at any rate.

AFAIR, Croke Park issued directives to all County boards and then to clubs that this rule would/should be strictly enforced, two years ago.

If the Mayo county board have consistently applied it since then they're airtight, if they've been selective in how they apply it and he has evidence of same, presumably their ruling would be overturned at the 2nd stage (provincial appeal) and he'd be let run.

It may not be that simple ,
if the rule was not always implemented and is being used now solely to stop him running the court could well side with him.
Maybe the club did not send  in its remittances and member list in time which would make it an arguable case as to was he registered or not , though I believe  he no longer reside in the club area any more so it could well have lapsed but does that mean your no longer a member esp if you have a club role a court could rule your a defacto member
 back in the day membership numbers used to be pathetic ( at least until mayo started qualifiying for all Irelands)
or for conspiracy  fans
 he could be being used as a stalking horse(by ????)  to get the whole thing into a courtroom where questions would have to be answered

its also an example of where the Ladies game differs from

No judge, except maybe in a movie, would allow their court to be used to air or advance a private dispute.

Former Mayo Footballer J P Kean has his say -

https://www.mayonews.ie/sports/34601-kean-slams-mayo-gaa-decision-to-bin-strategic-plan

He has a point about ex-players. David Brady for example, spouting a fair bit of rubbish hasn't mentioned this. Conor Mortimer not a peep. Billie Joe Padden, nada. John Maughan also. All media men but haven't put their heads above the parapet about this. Fair play to McStay, although those bridges are well and truly burned now I'd say after the debacle in 2015, so he doesn't have to give a shite.

Maybe some don't know enough or care enough about county board politics.

Mayo GAA has been embarrased in the last few months with all the stories that have appeared in the media. That a Mayo board member can suggest a meeting that the foundation should be told to keep their €250k and not a word of comment from mayo  people in the media is bizarre. One of the reasons this story has dragged on is it seems very few in the county are interested in calling out the county board for this shambles

Does anyone know, in Mayo, the media or otherwise what it is this O'Leary bucko wants?

It appears to me he started off firing money at us *unconditionally and then at some stage, seemingly after plenty of selfies with the high profile players, the money raised, allegedly, had conditions attached.

*unconditionally - my reading of it is that the first tranche was on the basis of how far we got in the campaign in 2018 and was to be spent on the team to get that extra 1 to 3% out of them...

You can see how there is confusion and anger over this carry on and a reluctance to comment by ex Mayo players when the full story isn't presented.

it was only one of a nuumebr of suggestions but that will happen if this goes to court . a lot of birty linen will be washed in Public, the county board have been hiding behind the coat tails of the Law and legal process  but it could well come back to bite them in the arse .
