GPA has a cheek asking for more from the taxpayer

The GPA and Des Farrell have a cheek, demanding more taxpayers’ money.

This is a classic example of much wanting more.

They are already more than well looked-after by the Government, and how much annually do they get from the GAA?

Additionally, how much does each county board spend on this privileged elite?

We learn that Dublin spent €1.5 million last year.

How much did each of the other counties spend?

Then there are the centres of excellence.

What was the cost of those already up and running, and what is the estimated cost of those under development and planned?

These centres are not intended for the club players but for Mr Farrell’s cosseted minority.
