Commercialization and corruption in the GAA with the pursuit of money is the Elephant in the Room. Weekly now we have new revelations about financial woes in clubs and counties yet when we call people to account we get 'An beal Bocht' whimpers and promise to change ! Pathetic excuses and communities being mugged ! Once again nice article from Joe Brolly.

MONEY - 2 Like(s)
How much does a GAA football manager get paid ? What are the current rates ? I have been coaching GAA for years I think it's time to earn a few bob for my volunteering ? Last time I was involved in paying a manager it was 100 a week. Any suggestions ?

Kilcoo have won the last 7 of 8 senior football championships in the Royal County so whats's the big deal about being a small and rural parish ? They must be raising some funds to pay for the team management of volunteers and all that mileage ploughing up and down those wee country roads for the love of the game from our wee Darrie Boys ach aren't the a class act ! Plenty of clubs up here in Derry could be doing with that free and brilliant management coaching advice ?

The Amateur Ethos - 1 Like(s)
' Smell of money leaving a stench'. Joe Brolly in the Independent today says it as it is. The corruption in the GAA with the pursuit of money to pay managers and coaching staff is criminal. We have lost the arguement within the debate on amateur -v- professionalism. We are paying to go to games and support our clubs and the money is being used primarily to pay wages to managers at all levels in club and county games.

Just watching Mickey Harte on TV and hearing him analysing the match the sheer passion and involvement he has. I think he is going nowhere and the other commentators a good day and joy watching restores some faith in the GAA. Cheers Mickey.

Has This Ever Been Done Before? - 1 Like(s)
Brilliant success story for this county. Why do we not hear cries of the vast amounts of money being poured into hurling in this county ? The silence is deafening. For me it symbolizes the ethos of the GAA , the club, community and county for all to enjoy.
