The GAA seeing itself as the saviour of modern ireland again.
But I think it’s a wider problem maybe in the GAA itself. Particularly in rural Ireland, there’s less and less facilities, there’s less money being made available.
There’s so much strength in Dublin and I know the debate is ongoing about the support that Dublin get, or the funding Dublin get, and it’s disproportionate.
there is no proof of this. there are more kids in dublin than are total populations of entire counties. I recall when Boden’s went to the all ireland a few years back people being amazed that there were more players in Bodens than in some counties.
The GAA has to invest where the population is. Rural depopulation is a government issue. Keep the population here and then work on it.
