Same club as the Connellys?


#8202

Dublin county board recieve more money from club members than,than they do from either GAA or AIG. You will never hear that from any journalist.


#8203

Correct sir


#8204

JP McManus after donating 100k to each CB in the country


#8205

JP is some man. Can’t be underestimated how much that 100K will be especially welcome in the smaller counties.


#8206

A glut of spoofer managers on the way …


#8207

Only buttons to Mayo … :wink:


#8208

Will the money go to where it’s supposed to go though …


#8209

Our board don’t deserve it the way they carry on.


#8210

Fair enough €25k for Galway, rossies, Sligo and leitrim


#8211

Huge boost to likes of Fermanagh clubs with around 22 clubs. €5k a piece. Less so in cork at €500 each.

Fair play to JP.

I wouldn’t be one to suggest ideas to him but thinking that in a lot of counties, it may be spread so thin that it’s half a set of jerseys.

Him Being a hurling man, I’m thinking if he’d approached CP and asked him to match the 100k over 3 years to fund hurling development officers in all the McDonagh cup counties you’d have seen big pay back.


#8212

Less than 500 each in Cork. Closer to 384 each


#8213

You can get a nice bus.


#8214

It’s nice, but I would much rather he paid taxes.


#8215

My understanding is that with his main businesses based overseas, he pays relevant taxes there (a mirror image of what google, Apple and co do in reverse here). He returns/lives here compliantly the 185 days he is allowed as per tax code.
On any local businesses here…adare manor…he’s be major tax contributor on employee prsi, vat etc etc


#8216

Actually didn’t realize it was going to he clubs…brilliant. 2k will be a big help.

#8218

McManus is a very generous man. His donations are always to the grass roots. Mostly to limerick causes but his head is in the right place . Never seizes to amaze me how McManus made so much money as a gambler in both horse racing and currency but he obviously was pretty good at it.


#8219

Better even than Bertie …


#8220

He’s up there with Biff from back to the future 2
