A GAA president does not come armed with a handbook. Is he chairman or chief, innovator, negotiator, dictator, conciliator — or all of those things, and whatever else you want to throw into the mix? Why would anyone even want the job?

Like everything in the GAA there is an attraction in doing the state some service, even if there is a sense of disconnect, either real or imagined, between those in Croke Park and the ordinary footsoldiers.
