Galway County Board has paid Croke Park 390,000 euro for All-Ireland Final tickets in 2015.

RTE is reporting that Galway treasurer Michael Burke told a County Board meeting on Tuesday night that the outstanding sum has been paid to GAA HQ.

Galway were beaten by Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Hurling Final that year and have since contested two finals, and won one of those in 2017.

The treasurer also told the meeting that the County Board had to write off around 100,000 in bad debt, sums that were owed to them, but that could no longer be collected for various reasons.

The news came as delegates await the publication of an internal audit report, commissioned by the treasurer, that has been completed for some months and has been seen by senior GAA officials in Croke Park.

The report hasn’t yet been made public, as it has been the subject of legal correspondence.

Croke Park have commissioned Mazars, the international auditing and corporate financing company, to conduct a full audit of Galway GAA and they have been working in Galway for a number of weeks. They are expected to report their findings in the next couple of weeks.
