Tyrone penny-pinching claims rubbished by angry Jordan

By Staff Reporter

Tyrone chairperson Roisin Jordan has issued a robust response to penny-pinching allegations which have been levelled at the county board.

Jordan insists that any major decisions involving funding or curbing expenditure in relation to county teams will ultimately be taken by the Tyrone County Committee "and not individuals or private emails exchanged between individuals".

An email which was sent to Newstalk's 'Off the Ball' programme on Thursday outlined a number of concerns over Tyrone funding and contained the revelation that Jordan is insisting upon a £15 contribution from each county player towards sports equipment.

Jordan now states that regular meetings between Executive officers, team management, and player liaison officers are held at which a range of issues involving games, administration and finances are discussed.

"In terms of finance, Tyrone are highly fortunate to have generous backers in the form of corporate sponsors and Club Tyrone. It is incumbent upon Tyrone GAA to ensure their investment is properly applied to GAA purposes," added Jordan.

"Any major decisions involving funding, or curbing expenditure, will ultimately be decisions for Tyrone County Committee and not individuals or private emails exchanged between individuals. Let there be no doubt that everyone within Tyrone GAA is fully behind Mickey Harte and his county team."
