Eugene McGee: Time for GAA to take head out of sand
The silence of the lambs is about the best description I can find for the results of the Irish Independent survey regarding payments to GAA managers.
For a body of people who are usually prepared to comment at the drop of a hat, these county board officers who were contacted seem to be remarkably reluctant to offer a view on one of the burning issues of the day. A third of respondents did not take part at all in the survey for a variety of reasons. Louth only answered one question.
Sligo, Armagh, Down, Derry, Fermanagh Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Meath and Clare did not take part. Cork replied that they always abided by GAA rules.
