I'm not saying the GAA as an organisation are right on this, but you can't dismiss the importance of the local club to their area.

The GAA should take a leaf out of the IRFUs book. They set up the Exiles in the UK which has paid dividends to the national set up. If the GAA put some more money into the UK game they could get a side up thaw would be quite strong
It is not a big deal when one looks at the genuine issues a recession creates.

Losing a few players is down the bottom of the list - it would be great if the GAA could see this.
