Empty feeling: A ban on spectators hit the GAA in the pocket and made for a surreal atmosphere

With new GAA president Larry McCarthy having already put a high-powered strategic review committee in place to map out what the next five years might hold for the Association, several county boards are taking a leaf from his book.

The Clare board in particular has perhaps shone a more revealing light as to just how future plans will be formulated now that a nine-strong committee - comprised, in the main, of high-profile businessmen - has been appointed to plot the pathway ahead.

But one prominent Ulster GAA dynamo is not in the least surprised by these developments. Indeed, 25 years have elapsed since Mark Conway played a key role in helping to launch Club Tyrone, a go-ahead project that was to set the tone for other island-wide fundraising mechanisms.
