Eugene McGee: Who’s really in charge – the managers or county board?
IN GAA politics nothing is ever straightforward, so it is never wise to make a definite statement about the latest controversy. The sudden decision of the chairman of Kildare County Board, Padraig Ashe, to resign last week is a good example of this.
The official explanation for the decision was “for personal reasons,” a catch-all term used by many who leave office suddenly.
Long years have taught me never to take things at their face value in the GAA because there are always hidden messages, strong rumours, innuendoes, and doubletalking in the air when a controversy like this surfaces.
