Tipperary County Board condemned for taking legal action against GAA

Published: 4 February 1914

Clubs in the south of Tipperary have condemned a decision by the Tipperary County Board to instituted legal proceedings against the Central Council of the GAA in connection with the Croke Memorial Funds. Decrying the move, one delegate said that the legal case could end up with the whole county of Tipperary being suspended for five years, or perhaps forever. The view of the delegates was that it was a mistake to sue the Central Council at a time when the county’s prospects were so bright in both football and hurling.
