Bullsh1te prevails at all levels of Irish society. Wading through it requires a big stick and a safety raft to get to better waters asap.
I'm not convinced that having Denis O'Brien funding the Irish manager's salary is a good idea either.
http://www.goal.com/en-ie/news/3942/...obrien-praisesO'Brien added: “He was worth every penny,” in the wake of Ireland's disappointing Euro 2012 campaign where they lost all three group games.
The FAI have confirmed that O'Brien has agreed to provide support in financing the Ireland manager's two-year contract extension, estimated to be €1.5m, with the entrepreneur's contribution thought to be in the region of 50 per cent.
O'Brien said of the appointment of Trapattoni in 2008 that he was "a great believer if you hire the right people you get the right results." He told the Bloomberg news agency yesterday that who the FAI appointed as national manager was up to the governing body of Irish football and not him.
JD is paid too much. If it is mainly financed by a state grant, the state should have some say about this.
Surprised that the like of Pat Kenny and Joe Duffy have not been critical of this - I know they get more but they are really really really worth it, or so they say.
