yes, but the point is that they had it to spend it, not why they had to.
for example, tipperary GAA had €4million in total last year from Central Council/sponsorship and fundraising, but they spent every cent of it.
you know, you had to get me interested in that aul page 150 of the 2016 report again since you mentioned Central Council Funding.
In 2015 Mayo got €476,998 in team expenses. Dublin got €381,226.
Taking out the dreaded sports council grant Dulbin got €751,924 from the GAA itself and mayo got…€994,925 !!!
