Eugene McGee: GAA can reap rewards of catching dubs' 'blue wave'

THE Dublin County Board last week announced their latest strategic plan, which lists some revolutionary goals for a massive long-term development of the GAA in the city and county, where about one-fifth of Ireland's population resides.

Dublin GAA chiefs have laid out nine strategic aims for the next six years or so, and some of these -- and the manner of their proposed implementation -- will ruffle feathers around the rest of Ireland.

Much is made in the report of the power that the GAA already has in Dublin. No doubt buoyed by this year's senior All-Ireland win, there is a small element of bragging going on, but they are entitled to that after so many barren years. Dublin have only won two All-Irelands in senior and U-21 football in the past 16 years.
