"That they have and, as the Dublin manager explained, there is nothing to stop club officials all over Ireland from putting business plans of their own in place and using them to seek money from HQ towards GPOs of their own"
this is an interesting little comment at the end. I had that discussion with bitter from brazil after he had mentioned that other contied didnt have business development plans like dublin could afford. you can probably guess that he didnt reply to the fact that I did a course in this, for free, in the FAS centre in shannon, and that every local tech which does a start your own business course in the evenings has this as a module.
then you have this report form the leinster council, which seems ot have been a two day wonder in the media
although if one googles "leinster GAA hurling waste" you get articles about dublin hurling on the usual basis.....
its almost like some people are deflecting like donald trump in GAA land.
