Eugene McGee: Recession putting GAAa's wastage into sharp focus
Money, particularly the lack of it, is dominating Irish life like never before, now that the country has deteriorated to a shocking degree. Emigration by young people is rampant and we have not yet reached the lowest point in our misery by any means.
A huge national organisation like the GAA is bound to be seriously affected by this downturn and all over the country there are signs of this.
Already county boards have drastically reduced their expenditure on preparing county teams and one can only wonder at the extent of the wastage that applied in recent years when we see some counties reducing their team expenses by over €100,000.
