The county board haven't said anything about it for 20 years. Doubt they'll start now.

They have agreed a settlement, but it have a disclosement agreement in plave with novlag, with seems like madness as the county board have to release the accounts every year, might see the gate takings go up a few hundred grand for 2013!!!!

As far as I can see New Eltham has not figured in County board accounts for the last five years, it always used to be in there before that, obviously any settlement is probably an embarrassing climb down by London/GAA so they are insisting on non dislosure

See the Irish post and world both had plenty on New Eltham to day, World told us nothing only trying to divert attention by going on about the new stadium Post more forthright about the lack of leadership of both London and Dublin GAA ,surely London members have the right to know what is happening.

if they do start redevelopment will all league games be played in Ireland?

Well, the alternative is to find a suitable venue elsewhere in London / UK. I guess this would affect two league campaigns?

Not sure if any of the pitches in London would be able to conform as I don't think, for example, you're allowed temporary fencing to the pitch etc but perhaps they'll turn a blind eye for the short term.

St. Albans always had a decent setup although pitch gets quite boggy in the winter for football and hurling (although where doesn't) there but the pitch might be on the small side for inter-county perhaps?

Outside of that you're looking at Birmingham which is a bit of a jaunt away form London although a damn bit cheaper than travelling to Ireland for every game!

If only the GAA in London owned another decent bit of land where they could have a couple of pitches....
