STATEMENT FROM ANTRIM COUNTY BOARD

STATEMENT FROM ANTRIM COUNTY BOARD

The Antrim GAA County Board wishes to refute in the strongest possible terms the erroneous allegations about player welfare that have been made against Antrim GAA by a former county hurler.

Allegations that players were “asked to take a cut” in their mileage expenses are completely false.

Similarly, claims that the Antrim senior hurling squad have been denied adequate playing gear are without foundation.

Our players received all of the gear that they were entitled to.

Following a meeting on the 24th February 2016,  involving the players, team management, and Co board officials a system of paying expenses was formulated. This was agreed by all parties.

After a difficult start to the 2016 season, and the disappointing decision of PJ O’Mullan to step down from his role as senior team manager, this is an important time for all of those with a vested interest in the development of Antrim hurling to pull together.

Antrim GAA is committed to enabling our players at every level to be the best they can be and to be competitive on the national stage.

It is regrettable that an attempt has been made to deflect from where our focus needs to be, but we are committed to working with the players to ensure Antrim hurling makes strong strides forward throughout the rest of the 2016 season.
