New complex

(Oldest Posts First)

I find it very hard to understand why the NY gaa are building a complex at gealic park with GAA money and investers and they don't even own the property. They rent the ground and build on it. Very hard to get my mind around it. They gonna have to pay tax for the complex and rent.

It dose not make sense to spend so much on a bar with a 10yr lease what kind of business model is that. Were is the logic? I am shocked coke park is even allowing this to happen. We need fields not bars we have plenty of them on Maclean Ave. We will lose a generation of kids the way we are going.

I agree with the GAA on this one and a 10 year lease is about all the bars on mc lean or anywhere else get. The GAA will make a lot of profit from this venture and have a fine facility at their disposal for dinner dances, weddings and all types of parties. I'm sure it will attract bigger attendances at games. It will be their first project in living memory and good luck to them.

I hear some clubs are trying to move the intermediate final from September 25th to a earlier date. I can only see this is to help all the money clubs with all summer players. Senior has gone now intermediate going in the same direction. Shame on the gaa ny board if this is allowed.

when is the new super-bar going to break ground? the date keeps moving it was meant to be January then may after the championship game then June. now we have no football to next april since all the money teams got the championship finished early. waste of money plenty of bars up on McLean ave. we need football fields not bars. but i am sure the county board should know this.

Heard from boys at work that this project in Yonkers has the backing of the local GAA. This is a good move I think.

I see next weeks schedule has been removed from your website. Is Gaelic Park being refurbished?

Yes. Sundays games are the last games until Mid July there.

No word from Senior Board on what's happening. Supposedly Manhattan College is starting new sod project Monday, but nothing being told to clubs or anyone else. Rockland GAA has schedule of matches on their Facebook page, is that how we hear what's going on? Total nonsense that a plan B was never fully talked about with clubs.

Yeah that's the truth. All the running around for the 1 Connacht match, but everyone else left to fend for themselves when it comes to our own season. Same story every year.

Its a total farce and nothing will change till they get the dinosaurs out from the county board. The only thing they want is to get that NY tie on and get photographed during their big weekend in May.
They also in position to accommodate their own clubs with the money racket still going on and killing football in the town.
Just take a look at the attendances now! only people that are there are committee members and playing members. Being in this town 20 years its a sad thing to see and no one seems to give a dam.
