GAA management by numbers

€25m (estimate)

What Croke Park sources believe will be spent on inter-county teams in 2010.


Tipperary's inter-county teams' expenditure in 2008, when they reclaimed the Munster title for the first time in seven years.


The total cost of team-administration expenses for Kerry in 2009, the bulk of which went towards the title-winning senior footballers. That was down almost €34,000 on the 2008 figure but these figures exclude the team holiday to New York and Jamaica last year.


What Kilkenny spent in 2008 when they won the All-Ireland Grand Slam -- senior, U-21, minor and intermediate.


What Kerry spent alone on medical and physio expenses according to their audited figures in 2009.


The average cost of a warm-weather training week away in Iberia in April.


The amount of money in 2009 each Kildare player was tasked with raising individually to help fund the equipping of a gym in Straffan and a trip to San Francisco and New York for 10 days. They achieved this by a variety of measures, following on from their involvement in a 'white collar' boxing event 12 months earlier.
