Incredible turn around in Kildare GAA’s finances revealed at convention today. There was a surplus of almost 500k for 2019 and the much talked about Croke Park loan of 2012 has been pretty much cleared

200k of that surplus has been into fund a ring fenced for the St Conleths Park development. There is now 650k in that fund which obviously reduces the amount that will need to be borrowed when the time comes


In fairness the house seems to be more in order. Roscommon have a big lot carried over too and the apartment in London being raffled off too is serious.
You would imagine that we should be out-performing them, but there is talk of houses and so on up for grabs.

Money rise is going to redeveloping of DrHyde park and development of Dermot Early excellence centre

That is a round-about fair play to Kildare for getting things on track.
BUT I'd love to see us push on in terms of money if we get on any kind of run this summer.

Have to say I do wince when I see unfolding financial crises in Mayo and Galway – because it's not so long ago we were in such a situation ourselves. You'd just be relieved it's not us going through another disaster.

Thankfully we've turned the ship around but we could actually be doing even better. We actually under-perform as much off the field as on. Seriously when you think of the advantages we have over, say, Mayo – right next to Dublin, multinationals and big business in our midst, players not having to travel vast distances mid-winter – it's a scandal that we aren't a perennial fixture in Division 1.

Btw, pointing out the obvious, but the financial situations in Galway, Mayo and other counties are deteriorating whilst we collectively have shelled out for the Dubs to do five in a row and have the time of their lives.

So much for equality in the GAA... The hypocrisy in the upper echelons of the association is nauseating.

It's true... The league is some competition.

I honestly think the GAA could make a huge dent in fixtures problem by just moving it to the summer. Top four teams from Div 1 into quarter finals, along with top two in Div 2, and Div 3 and 4 champions.

Boom – sellout houses all summer long.

I tried to total up this year's attendances but it appears that the attendance figures for most of the qualifiers have been suppressed. I suppose we'll have to take the GAA's word for it when they release their 2019 annual report. You'd imagine they're still on the downward trend and that next year will be worse. How many casual Dublin fans are going to bother paying an exorbitant ticket price to see so many non-games now that the "drive for five" has been completed?

Interest in inter-county football is already way down on where it used to be and is going to fall off a cliff. Croke Park will eventually take note. I fear it will be too late and splitting Dublin in ten years time won't make any difference. If anything, Dublin North vs Dublin South in the AI final every year will be the final nail in the coffin.

A lot in the news today about the 2019 annual report but I don't see it available for download anywhere yet.

In the meantime, with some estimates from early rounds, particularly games in London and New York, the 2019 provincial championship attendances were 347,168 over 31 games, average 11,200. 2018 was average of 11,681.

If a business was doing those revenues & profits it's execs would be on a lot more and unfortunately the GAA is being run as a business.

125k*14= 1.75 million. That would buy those guys a lot of love for the GAA.

It’s laughable at this stage that the players who actually generate the 73 million in income get nothing while the suits who do fcuk reward themselves with 6 figure salaries.
