Leitrim GAA spent €324,000 last year

Despite the poor championship performance last year Leitrim GAA spent €324,805 on their teams in 2015.

Figures reveal Leitrim had the second lowest spend in Ireland last year; Louth GAA took the lowest spot with €282,789.
Last year's figure was just marginally lower than the spend in 2014 which amounted to €338,604.


Our neighbouring counties and rivals spent much more on their teams for 2015. Roscommon spent €717,097, Sligo €474,703, Longford €417,000, Donegal €765,824, Cavan €499,323, Fermanagh €420,287 and Longford €417,000.
The official cost for the inter-county activity of all 32 counties, across both codes and all grades from minor upwards came to €21.87m last year, up 6.77% on 2014 figures.


GAA county boards deliver much transparency when it comes to financial matters. In the case of team expenditure, it is listed and itemised uniformly in annual conventions under a number of standard headings from travel, catering, medical and physio, gym and equipment and in some cases team administration.


The figures for 2015 County GAA spend was collated by the Irish Independent.


We will need to wait until next year's annual convention to learn what Leitrim GAA spent this year on the Senior county team.
