Clarification has been issued by the Friends and Supporters of Clare GAA that a letter sent to GAA clubs in the county had no connection to their group.
Before last week’s meeting of Clare GAA, a number of club secretaries in the county received an e-mail signed ‘Friends of Clare GAA’.
It repeated allegations about funds raised by the Clare hurling supporters club between 2012 and 2016 and claims that the county senior hurlers had to break into Cusack Park and the document went on to urge clubs “to ask the many questions that need to be addressed”.
This week Pat Nihill, chairman of the Friends and supporters of Clare GAA in Dublin has issued a disclaimer to the letter circulated to the clubs.
“It has come to my attention that a letter has been received by some clubs in Clare regarding administration issues at Clare County board level. This unsigned document did not come from the committee of the Friends and Supporters of Clare GAA, Dublin which is our correct title”.
Clonlara native Nihill in a statement to The Clare Echo outlined, “We are now in existence for 30 years and during that time we have contributed in the region of €600,000 to Clare Co. Board. We have also supported Clare ladies and mens football at club and county level. We wish all teams in Clare the best of luck for 2021”.
