This is a strange decision by the county board as i see enda kilpatrick and niall smyth are involved with the u21 yet canavan wont commit. Also where did the county board get malachy cullen out of because i dont remember him around any club in fermanagh! and to do this job without 10 of his best players is near ompossible against armagh

Cullen is from devenish but orginally from Donegal and was senior manager when they won league in 08. A very good manager

Does winning one league make someone a good manager!!! If he is from Devenish all their good managers from the past have won championships!!

But they also left Devenish in a mess!

He was only took them for one year from what I know...sure the likes of henry and chapman who previously had the job had not massive success at clubs either.

gaeelforce15 you info is not totally correct mate and what's more the co board is interest in raising the necessary funds for the betterment of football in the county and not the slant you are putting on it.

My god fermanagh people are the most negative ever. Its the 1st time we have done a major fundraiser in years, its great to see it, and great to see the players getting involved as well. Let them get on with it and quit trying to put it down. Looking forward to a great weekend

The Brewster Brawl.

Again this is usually something that I would welcome. An innovative idea by the players to raise money and help with their preparation for next season. But again on closer examination questions have to be asked...
Each player has been told they have to raise £500. Now if there is a 30 man panel that is £15000 plus the money they will make on the 3 nights themselves out of ticket sales, the raffle and the bar. It should raise a lot of money
1. What is this money going towards??
2. Who will control what it is spent on??
3. Will it be used to cover management travelling "expenses"?
I would be all for this event but I want clarity on exactly what the money is being used for and who will be controlling the purse strings.


I agree with the Fermanagh Chief but would to have concerns about the control of the money and what it is to spent on. The first spanner-in-the-works is apparently Enniskillen Gaels club's expenses for hosting the event. They is talk that they expecting the same reinbursement as the Ulster Council has given them for hosting intercounty football which equates to about 9 or 10% of the gate returns. This matter cannot be brushed over and hiddeen somewhere in generakl expenses. Should this event be run whereby everything is transparent?

Maybe gaalltheway will enlighten us from monday nights co board meeting

The money raised from the brewster brawl weekend - where specifically is it going? Who is accountable for the money - will it be co board managing it or the senior team management and players. Will a set of accounts from the weekend be published to all clubs?
Is a week in La Manga on the senior team managements wish list this year?

hold on here no players committed to bursting themselves to selling tickets to raise funds so the the townies club gets a sizeable cut of the funds. im no thinking that the gaels club will have the bar and be making thousands from that to. some tough talking will have to be done to get all this sorted as we seem to be led down the garden path for a cosier we fundraiser for the townie club too. we did not agree to that.

Ask your co board rep as he is very supportive of the venture.

Ask yourself if the event was being held at Kinawley would your club not expect some benefits?

gaalltheway (Fermanagh) - Posts: 761 - 08/11/2012 12:48:02    1294621


Our rep is NOT supportive of the venture given that theres no transparency on where the money is going to and what its paying for (a team holiday) and until the top table state categorically what the money is being raised for, then our clubs stance wont change regardless of who is taking part in it.

I also think youre deluding yourself as the gaels club arent getting a penny from the bar either.

gaalltheway you never give the answer we expect. i guess that it will be the same old story as we'll never get to hear the correct figures.

Any raised monies must be handled by the co board who are responsible for the county teams. No one else has that athority so what is the point of the fermanagh chief (macca99) bringing up the issue? The answer may be in the fact that Ekn Gaels are facilitating the fundraising on their premises and also the fact that there is cross membership of bouth our club and the co board and this gives the amunition to the likes of macca99 to question the honesty and integrity of the members concerned. How dare they start such rumours.

Well said Barney. It's time to silence posters who indulge in such anti-co board activities. It's pointless talking about the past as these shortcomings, if they did exist and that's a matter of opinion, should be swept under the carpet so to speak and move on to seeing how best we can raise funds for the co board's enrichment of intercounty football fot Fermanagh. Anyone opposed to this usually have very little to offer the GAA and do more damage to the organisation they proport to support. macca999 on your tandem and take your nonsense else where!
