Kickham’s Club Criticises GAA Governance

Published: 25 June 1913

The AGM of the CJ Kickham’s Club asked a hard question of the GAA today. Why after years of dominating the alien games in the country, and with spectators and their entry fees pouring through the turnstiles, do so few GAA clubs own their own grounds? The AGM recommended that the GAA rethink its governance, overhaul its competition structures so clubs could play more games, and better redistribute the revenue that is being generated.
