Limerick GAA issue statement in response to Billy Lee comments.

The Management Committee of Limerick GAA had this to say following Lee’s interview, where he outlined areas where he believed that the county board had fallen short of their duties ahead of his sides Munster Senior Football Championship opener with Clare.

“The County Board tenders for and approves caterers at the beginning of each year. Each individual team management and their support team is then responsible for arranging the team meals after training as required.

The team lists for this weekend’s fixtures week ending May 20th were received by the County Secretary on Wednesday evening and were subsequently forwarded in good faith to Croke Park in accordance to compliance with regulation. A subsequent email was received by the County Secretary late Wednesday night which the County Secretary did not have access to until after the 9.00am deadline on Thursday morning.

Any request made by the Senior football team management during 2018 was agreed and acceded to by Limerick Co Board.

Limerick Co Board would like to acknowledge the contribution of the Senior Football players and management for 2018.

Limerick GAA will make no further comment on this matter.”
