Money ball: Cavan made the All Ireland semi-final, but don’t know when they will play again

It now appears extremely likely that without intervention from the Irish Government, the GAA's National League programme may not proceed, with one county alone predicting a £178,000 cost of preparing their county team.

While a previous meeting with County chairmen was broadly positive about teams returning to a programme of games split into regional sections, north and south, last week's meeting of county treasurers had a very different feel, with Cavan Treasurer Martin Cahill outlaying a very different perspective.

"There was a lot of frustration from treasurers that the league was announced and nobody seemed to be cognisant of the fact that it was going to take a lot of money to put teams out to play in it," he said.
