Premier in the black after cutbacks of over €1m
TIPPERARY GAA officials slashed expenditure by over €1m in the last 12 months.
Figures released at last night's annual convention at the Dome in Thurles revealed the massive cutbacks and a surplus has been recorded in the Premier County for the first time in five years.
Treasurer Eamonn Buckley's report detailed a €52,699 profit for 2013, following on from losses totalling in excess of €650,000 over the previous four years. A worrying financial slide has been arrested by Tipperary chiefs and this is the first time since 2008 that figures are in the black.
Remarkably, expenditure was trimmed by €1,070,925 compared to 2012 totals and spending on inter-county teams dipped below the €1m mark for the first time since 2008.
The figure reported for 2013 is €878,418, down by €236,832 from last year.
