Former Westmeath senior footballer John Connellan has posted an open letter to his twitter account, highlighting the problems in the GAA’s funding, with particular reference to Dublin.
Connellan details the plan set out by GAA President Sean Kelly (2003-2006) to revive Gaelic Games in the capital.
Among the shocking funding statistics, Connellan states that between 2007 and 2017 Dublin received funding in the region of €16.6 million, in comparison to their Leinster final opponents Meath, who received roughly €800’000.

If, after last night’s Leinster Final you’re as concerned about football as I am then you might want to give this open letter a read and tag your county’s twitter pages. @officialgaa @gaelicplayers @westmeath_gaa @MeathGAA @KildareGAA @OfficialLDGAA @wicklowgaa @ShaneSaint pic.twitter.com/zOhhyVvhQW
