Should we go in the same direction as the rugby, maybe Dublin with 4 other teams i.e. East, West, North and South Leinster in Leinster.  
Cork, Kerry and rest of Munster in Munster.
Maybe Antrim and Fermanagh combined in Ulster and Sligo Leitrim combined in Connacht.

If funding Dublin GAA is a guarantee of success why did Laois hurlers beat them last week and why have they not won a leinster title in recent years or is all the funding or a high proportion going to the footballers, just a thought

TotalGAA Dublin hurling started off at a far lower base than the hurlers. Not sure on equity of breakdown but you can be sure if Costello, Kilkenny and O’Callaghan to name but a few had opted to play hurling they may well have had a few more titles.

Lads lads lads and ladies. Keep your hair on. Have a look at the attached graph. The reason we are so far behind a number of counties is we have a load of inexperienced dopes running the county board who can’t commercialise the Kildare GAA brand. We live in a wealthy county with some of the biggest multinational companies resident here and some of the most wealthy people in the world with interests here.
We can go on giving out about the GAA and Dublin but we need to look closer to home. When the dopes are in charge we are going no where. But they are delighted you are all distracted by the Dublin and GAA bashing as you wont look at them.

I'm sure that Kildare County Board didnt publish that or highlight it Shay Tompkins, that would be you posting it. Like it or not the County Board was voted in by the clubs and if you are a member of one who elects their delegate at the agm,maybe you should seek election for that position and try to change things. You are coming across as having a personal vendetta against Mr Donnelly and Co and to me that pettiness totally detracts from any validity your argument has. Also in reference to one of your earlier posts I was on a team at the Club Kildare Golf classic in Dunmurry and there were signs everywhere re sponsors, etc. Baskets full of fruit, bars, water, energizer and we ate at the club house. Pity I had the round from hell but perhaps I'll blame that on the County Board too .

With the miserly attendance at croke park, the argument for playing in Croke park is dead. The atmosphere is terrible. This along with the one sided Dublin games has killed the super 8's, along with the Leinster championship. At the very least all games should be at a truly neutral venue except for Leinster final, all Ireland semi-final & final and of course Dublin's home games.

The way things are going they're going to struggle to sell premium seats. Why would you pay these prices for so many dud games with no atmosphere?

Ofc it's not just in Croke Park. Attendances in general have fallen off a cliff.

At least there's finally a national outcry about the unfair funding given to Dublin but we were pointing this out years ago when there was still time to correct it but nobody listened and most people outside Kildare and Meath said it was just sour grapes. Now the chickens have come home to roost and we have also have a meaningless AI championship but Croke Park (in cahoots with their yes men county board officers all over the country) are still failing to do anything about it.

On the positive side, the unfair funding to Dublin will soon cease. Regrettably no other county will get any either because there simply won't be any money other than from hurling attendances.

I was in Croke Park yesterday, very few at the first game, which wasn't a bad game. Hardly anyone from Cork, good few from Tyrone.

Dublin game was over after 15 minutes.

The only problem I see is if Dublin are going to continue the play there ( in the league also ) other teams will also want to play there as there is little point in arriving in Croke Park for an All Ireland semi final having not play there all year.

Cill Dara you hit the nail in the head about county board yes men. The only time I can recall any stand taken against any unfair advantages was Kildare with venue argument last year. The Donegal motion to have Dublin taken out of Croke park was defeated at Congress and allowed to be described as mean spirited. Classic example of county board yes men out of touch with grassroots.

Some counties in Leinster need to buck up overall but there is potential.
I've an issue with it being slated by people based on the Dubs ability to hammer teams when they have beaten the lard out of teams from every province.
We are being scapegoated for too long.

Embarrassing scenes for the county board and mr Donnelly in st conleths park over the weekend where a Rheban player was left on the pitch for nearly one hour with a broken leg and no medical personnel or ambulance in attendance. Does this render the insurance null and void. Does a division 4 final not matter are caragh and rheban not entitled to be treated the same as Sarsfields or Moorefield. Where was the county boards event management plan a document club insurers are now insisting clubs have in place for events and games. The confusion and lack of anything near a plan at the game was embarrassing. The behavior of the very few county board officers in attendance gives headless chickens a bad name. We seriously need a significant change of personnel at the county board or we are going no where. I know some of you disagree and that is your right but we are going no where with our current leadership or lack thereof.

I was chatting to a Tipp Fella at the Weekend, and He was telling me that Tipp have a few Fellas on the U20 Team to face Cork in the U20 Munster Final on Wednesday night, that are on the Senior Team/Panel.. anyway,  is it a fact that U20 Footballers can't be involved in both County Teams but Hurlers can  ? .  And if so, can someone please explain why  ??.

That's correct Seamus, different rules for hurlers. Laois U20 manager was very angry over this and said he wouldn't be interested in staying on next year if the rule didn't change for the football. He made a very good point that it penalises counties like Laois with the smaller playing numbers in that the best young players are needed on the senior team.
It's yet another rule brought in that inadvertently helps Dublin due to the considerable advantages they enjoy. There are some fine footballers on that U20 Dublin team but they wouldn't get a sniff of senior championship football with the huge panel Dublin have at the moment.

Shay Tompkins.... i see the triple post and now i hear you expanded to KFM Clem Ryan reading virtually the same post from a Shay Tompkins from Allen/Milltown i think..... you have serious issues with county board...….

Its shocking scenario, was at a club game last year where a guy broke ankle and at least the club had a stretcher etc. on site to at least take the player off the pitch into the warm clubhouse to wait for an ambulance, i have to say usually at games in Newbridge you see the Order of Malta at least.

Just a question i assume that both clubs had physio's at the game? as that is the club's responsibility i believe.

Sad to hear of the passing of Paddy Timmons a true Gael. Not a match would go by that Paddy wasn’t in Hawkfield or St. Conleths. Never shy to step into the breach if any ref. was stuck for an umpire. You were guaranteed that the stopwatch was always running.  He’ll be sadly missed. Rest In Peace Paddy. and condolences to your family and all at Sarsfields. Topcat you’ve lost a great one but he left many happy memories.

I see Moorefield the latest to buy into Dublin celebrity and brand. Ciaran Kilkenny down in his gear to tell them they'd a great number of kids out training as they fawned. Two questions. 1. How much? 2. Why?

A penny for James Murray's thoughts. Was literally standing beside him, a guy he could be marking...

I don't agree with it Tommy but I don't dictate club policy. We both agree it's a bad trend in Kildare GAA but lads don't want to listen to us... Tis a crying shame.

Indeed, not blaming all or even most in a great club that have shown Kildare football what can be achieved. But becoming a trend and think seeing the county champions with own All Ireland winners there makes it worse for me.

Colm Cooper was in my own club a few years back doing a training session with the underage the kids had a great day training with one of the best players ever is that wrong? they also had our county men doing the training with Cooper. Ciaran Kilkenny has 4 all irelands one of the best known players around no matter where he is from Kids will look up to him what is wrong with that Tommy?

A huge amount of kids haven't moved from Kerry, aren't cheering for Kerry, aren't seeing local shops have Kerry merchandise take over. Meanwhile Kildare don't have an on-field rivalry with Kerry and aren't seeing the game destroyed by the financial muscle of Kerry. We talk in Kildare about where we'd like to be and mention Tyrone, Donegal, Mayo, Galway not so long ago. You won't see Peter Harte in St Eunan's, Michael Murphy in Omagh, Padraic Joyce in Mitchells, Aidan O'Shea in Corofin etc...

Basically we are in big enough trouble due to having a team up the road that no one else other than Meath at our level have to deal with, and here we are promoting their image and successes. It's absurd.
