The GAA received €12 million more than soccer, which’s outrageous when you consider the amount playing the sport.

The FAI need to sort out their house, but a massive argument for why the sport needs increased funding.
You need to apply.its part of the deal. Not the GAA's fault if the soccer clubs didn't bother.

If you're club didn't get funding then go to the AGM, elect a Funding Officer, and go get it.

It's not rocket science.

Funding Officer fills out the forms, goes to meetings, gathers statistics of numbers of kids in club, outlines club 5 year plan, costs it, distribute it to local politicians in PowerPoint..... It's not rocket science.

Most clubs that apply and get funding,own their facilities.The funding allocations may look unfair but the reality is,that hockey,GAA,rugby,Gol f and sailing/yachting have their own clubhouses,bars and restuarants and actually own them.Normally the monies allocated are for upgrades,extensions or renovations.So these sporting clubs would apply through their knowledgable membership(rightly so)and through the proper channels(normally seeking advice and getting help from local politicians)as to how best to secure crucial funding.
Sadly a lot of clubs in working class areas are not in ownership of their clubs buildings,so therefore are tenants in most cases,especially outside of GAA and to a lesser degree soccer.Boxing,basket ball,gymnastics,kara te,MMA,judo,majorett es,baton twirlers,Pigeon racing and Harrier hunting are clubs that do not have huge overheads and are normally leasing facilities.Also they would not be clubs in affluent areas and would not attract financially/legally astute members.Sadly this reflects in the allocations.

While we have far more people playing soccer, there is probably a saturation of clubs and that splits resources even further.
Maybe 30 or 40 years ago GAA clubs were ahead of soccer clubs in terms of facilities and bases they serve..I wouldnt think that's the case anymore. Look at clubs like carrigaline utd
Middleton Douglas Hall Corinthians Mayfield utd etc all with top facilities and cater for huge numbers. Tha te s only a small sample.
