by John Keogh Limerick Leader Sport

LIMERICK GAA have confirmed that spend on county teams has gone up by €65,845 from 2022. In his Financial Report at the county convention held at the Woodlands House Hotel this Monday evening, treasurer Sean Burke revealed that the increase is mainly down to inflation.

Spending on county teams was €2,363,731 in 2023, compared to 2022 where the amount was listed as €2,297,886. The year was another red letter one for the senior hurlers with League, Munster Championship and All-Ireland victories.

In 2021, the figure spent was at €1,321,258 but that amount was always going to increase following the re-opening of grounds etc following the impact of Covid.

Despite the increase in expenditure, Mr Burke reported a profit of €498,109 for the year with an increase from the figure in 2022 of €95,290.

Mr Burke highlighted an increase of gate receipts at the TUS Gaelic Grounds – namely the sell-out games in the Munster SHC, Limerick v Cork and the Munster final between Limerick and Clare.
