Armagh GAA Players Express Anger Over Delay In Expenses Payment

Armagh GAA players have taken to Twitter to express their anger at the lack of expenses received to date, sharing their concerns for students in a cost of living crisis, even going as far as contemplating a game boycott.

Armagh's joint captain Aidan Nugent yesterday tweeted that some players hadn't received the expenses they're due, despite being eligible since the return of intercounty training at the end of November.

Teammates Rian O'Neill, Oisin O'Neill, Rory Grugan, and Ross McQuillan all retweeted the original tweet.


Nugent's Armagh teammate Aidan Forker replied to the tweet and suggested threats to sit out upcoming games could get the issue resolved quickly.


If we threatened not to bother playing at the weekend they'd soon scramble to get the system up and going.

The issue is believed to be caused by an issue with the GAA's expense system that has prevented inter-county players outside the Eurozone from claiming their expenses. Speaking to Colm Keys of the Independent this morning, GPA CEO and former Mayo legend Tom Parsons said they'd followed up with the GAA and the system should be fully functioning this week.

We were notified last week that the system is still not operational for counties outside the € (euro) zone as changes are being made to move all currency over to £ (sterling) for those counties.

This work was due to be completed last Friday and is now overdue which we have expressed our dissatisfaction to Croke Park. They have committed to having this work complete by latest tomorrow so those squads will be up and running by tomorrow

Armagh currently sit in second place in Division 1 of the Allianz League, after a win and a draw from their opening two games.
