    A former officer of Waterford County Board of the GAA at the centre of a garda investigation into the alleged misappropriation of €142,000 from inter-county ticket sales was found dead in Co Wexford yesterday.


    The body of the man in his 60s was discovered at around 12.30pm in a field at Stokestown some three miles from New Ross and was later removed to Waterford Regional Hospital at Ardkeen for a post-mortem examination.


    Gardai confirmed the discovery of the man's body but said that they were not treating the death as suspicious and were not looking for anybody else in connection with the his death.


    The news comes only days after it emerged that Waterford County Board of the GAA had made a complaint to gardai that some €142,000 from ticket sales had been misappropriated

        In retaliation to more of Stringers classics [img]smileys/lol.gif[/img][/QUOTE]

        IF they were good enough to win one, and actually did on hard work not cause they almost did 100 times and their players are getting old, then I'd have no problem with them winning one, but I'm sick of this "fuppers from Kilkenny or Cork" attitude. Now don't get me wrong Waterford put in the work are an excellent team but the media and everyone else seem to think that they, or whoever it happens to be that season have a divine right to win. It's not our fault that no one can beat one of the 2 of us, and it's based on resentment and jealousy. It's unfair as well because at the end of the day they're after working their socks off to get that good. But it's not appreciated by anyone except their own fans because everyone else are sick of the site of one of the two of us with the Liam Mc.

        Now this buisness last year of "I hope Waterford win it because they really deserve it" crap really got under my skin. It'll happen again this year, be it Tipp or whoever, but in my book loosing every important game for the last 50 years and being beaten by the better team on the day isn't deserving it. It's going to be similar this season with Tipp or Galway. Now if they or any other team manages to beat us (your arrogance knows no boundries! you are hardly a superpower at the moment)and win in the final then rightly so and fair play. But almosts and maybes aren't good enough at the end of the day. Fine, maybe Waterford do deserve to win it but know one, KNOW ONE has a divine right to just cause they're playing good hurling and are another team besides Cork and KK. I've know problem with other teams coming (well thats good to know, we are all very grateful)through, I even like it, it's good for the game. But what I do have a problem with is the begrudging attitude that everyone has towards Cork and KK (Remember some of your comments towards KK last year??). We put in the same amount of work, if not more then whoever it is who happen to be the new "guys on the block." Not to mention that we've been around for years, putting in the work and winning every year ( winning every year is it? I can remember Cork losing a number of Munster Championships and All Irelands). The amount of times I heard the phrase "Not Cork and KK again" ( Yes that would have been you... short memory issues much?) is a joke. We do not begrudge anyone for winning the AI so do not begrudge us for being good enough to be there year in year out. COME OFF THE f**kING CROSS.. you truly are the queen of the "anti Cork bias". noone will dispute cork are a fine side, the issue is the pissing and moaning supporters who the majority ofin my opinion, dont have a f**king clue... and are just bad losers and worse winners

              Indeed, very tragic alright.

              This may well put a stop to all the investigations though.

              The fact that the board didn't report the missing cash immediately, combined with the timing of the bounced cheque to make it past the auditors and the auditor's sign off on the accounts implicates an awful lot of people in this.

                    True cornerboy - who knows what was going on that he needed the money for. Obviously, from the ending to the saga, all was not well with the man.

                      Tony Browne sent off in club game for Mount Sion. Will be reported for striking with the hurley from what Ive heard. Could do time for that. This plus Eoin Murphy's broken arm and Eoin Kelly's broken finger is leaving Waterford's already limited panel fairly threadbare for the clash with Clare.


                      Mount Sion were beaten by an emerging Abbeyside team.

                        Derry beat Kerry and Dublin lost as well, that on top of Munster winning today. Not a bad weekend at all.

                          Kerry U21 football champs. Killian Young, Tommy Walsh, Paul O'Connor, Killian O'Leary the names to keep and eye on from this team.

                            I think David Moran is more likely to make it as a senior midfielder than Walsh. The only other position Walsh can play is FF and Donaghy isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Moran is a big, strong lad with great fielding ability (as is Walsh) but he is a much better all round footballer.
