Lake County’s team expenses head towards €1m mark

Westmeath GAA’s County Convention, which took place in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone last Sunday, was largely dominated by discussions on the financial challenges facing the county.

With the cost of county teams reaching €823,327 for 2018 (up from €750,517 the previous year), club delegates queried where the money is really being spent and there were calls for a breakdown on how much resources are available for the development of underage players.
