Joint Treasurer, Mr. Joe Queenan, told Conventiont that the accounts were in order and were one of the first set of accounts to be sent to Croke Park last November. Within two weeks of the accounts being sent to Croke Park, Sligo received its funding from the Association.
The accounts would be audited within the next few weeks and would come before the County Board
The accounts were perfectly in order and budget plans were already in place for the coming year, Mr. Queenan added.
The outgoing Joint Treasurer gave a breakdown of team expenses for 2012, explaining that the senior team cost €240,000 and the under 21 team cost between €18,000 and €20,000. The minor team cost €12,689 while it cost €44,600 to run the senior hurling team.
It was planned to cut expenditure on the senior team by about €30,000 this year, he pointed out.
Mr. Queenan said the day to day running costs of the County Board would be about €100,000 a year over the next ten years.
Chairman, Mr. Cyril Feehily, proposed that the adoption of the accounts be deferred until such time as they were audited.
However, a proposal from the floor that the accounts be adopted was carried unanimously
