Des is only repeating things from the past. We have been to numerous meetings over the years where everybody talks the talk and looks interested and caring. Only for an inept countyboard to either renege on the agreements made or to implode under financial irregularities again.

Bottom line is..................the clubs don't give shit.

As long as the status quo remains, the big clubs remain in power and the ship sails on nicely.
But if the big clubs are crossed then everybody may look out.

I must say that I don't agree with anything Lilylady says. I have been attending the Ladies County Board meetings for the past 18 months and have found the executive to be most agreeable to whatever the clubs suggest.
Des Henry has put a lot of hard work into formulating a development plan which he has rolled out to the clubs, the next step is in the hands of the clubs. Des has only been in the job since the last county convention, a very short time in which to enact a plan which will take 5 years at least.

At each county board meeting every club has an equal voice, most of the time it gets expressed. I don't see any examples of big clubs ruling the roost. Every decision gets put to a vote, with Majority rule. The chairman Joe O'Donoghue is a real football man and a no nonsense chairman. Arthur Corrigan is also dead straight and to the point.

The executive has turned a dire financial situation around in the space of eighteen months and made a lot of cost savings, such as adopting the same crest as Kildare GAA and using the same website. These have resulted in numerous savings.

Kildare has the second highest number of ladies clubs in Leinster after Dublin, also the second highest number of competitions as follows;
Minor Championship (81 matches)
Under 16 Championship (90 Matches)
Under 15 Autumn league (90 Matches)
Under 14 Championship (90 Matches)
Under 14 Feile Tournament (equivalent of 20 full matches)
Under 13 Autumn league (90 Matches)
Under 12 Championship (90 Matches)
Under 11 Autumn League – Non Competitive (90 Matches)
Under 10 Go Games (90 Matches)
Under 9 Go Games (90 Matches)

Why all the negativity, ok the set-ip is not perfect, however its a damn sight better than it was in the past.

I must also mention the new PRO, who is doing a fantastic job.

See the Stars

Well said. Jackie is bril and Des is totally committed. Joe is a trojan football person, played Hurling & Football for Club & Kildare and his girls are very good players but he lets thenm fnd their own way.Majella has been excellent club Sec He is an excellent Chairperson ( made me shut-up and that wasn't easy !!!!!!. )

County Board can only be as good as the Delegates the Clubs send and there are loads of great people. I wish you all the best.
