Galway were the biggest spenders in the country in 2018
Galway's high-performing hurlers and footballers have seen the county top the league of big spenders with a record €1,842,230 being spent on county teams this year.
The Tribesmen's expenditure on the preparation of their inter-county teams during the past 12 months is the highest audited figure by any county yet.
Their county hurlers went all the way to the All-Ireland final while the footballers were beaten in the semi-final by Dublin.
The Galway figure tops the €1.75m spent by both Dublin in 2011, when they were pursuing five All-Ireland titles that year right into August, and Cork in 2017, and the €1.63m which Mayo spent in 2016.
The Galway convention was presented with the treasurer's report this evening.
