The Association's financial results released today showed a €1.8million fall in profits in 2015, with Kilkenny unhelpfully beating Galway at the first time of asking to end an unprecedented run of three drawn All-Ireland hurling finals in a row.

That's the problem with Glory Days, much better the Ties that Bind (fans to a return trip to Croker).

GAA figures

It didn't help that there was no sport Born in the USA played at Headquarters in 2015. Revenues were down by €4m on 2014, when the college football game between Penn State and the University of Central Florida brought in €3m alone.

The GAA would want to get walking the Streets of Philadelphia and find another couple of teams Blinded by the Light and the chance to visit the old country.

With Dublin's dominance of Leinster leaving match revenues down by €700,000 in My Hometown, the GAA may need to consider a Human Touch to get fans back in the doors before their showpiece stadium becomes a Secret Garden.

After all, We Take Care of Our Own.
