That’s very odd thinking - for a start, all county boards are political. I have no idea how the current county board is constructed, but I have read enough about heffernan’s time to see that he had a distant relationship with he various boards that existed in his time. I’ve also read enough in books by former dublin stars to see the like all county boards the dublin one has lads in it who would be pursuing their own agenda sometimes to the detriment of the county ( it happens in every committee to b honest). So to take the inaction of the county board as being a reason why it hasn’t been done is not a valid reason as we do not know the reason why they haven’t done it.
In fact, I’m remainded of the fly the flag campaign, I think a similar excuse was offered early doors in that time too.
Many fan supporter groups erect memorials, or do things, to honour past players or managers in their clubs or teams worldwide. What we are discussing is nothing out of the ordinary. Asking for a quote from a sculpter is hardly the act of a bunch of delusional madmen either - it was done on he assumption of a blessing from the family and then seeing if it was doable at all from a fans point of view.
As things stand, until I know any better, I feel we could at least ask one of the admins, on behalf of the membership, to send an email to the county board and word to the family to actually find out the position, instead of asking assumptions. To date nobody has come on here and said “I asked the family, they said no”
And to be perfectly honest, unless it was an admin, I’m not sure I’d believe them after the way this has gone since our friend has turned up.
Perhaps it might be sensible to put up poll before we actually do anything, and that might put it to bed.
