DONEGAL GAA REFEREES COULD STRIKE OVER ‘PALTRY’ MATCH PAYMENTS

first_imgSOME Co Donegal GAA referees may go on strike over ‘crazy’ payments for officiating at games.The Revenue Commissioners are insisting that new rules are implemented on payments – and Croke Park has agreed.Referees in several other counties including Longford and Wexford have threatened strike action and one in this county told donegaldaily.com: “That might just happen here too. The new system is a disaster. The reimbursement proposals are paltry.” In a document shown to donegaldaily.com on how the new Croke Park system, approved by the Revenue, will work says referees can claim 50 cent per mile plus a subsistence allowance of €13.71, up to a maximum of €40 (including mileage and subsistence).It followed meetings between the GAA and the Revenue as a result of which referees expenses were subject to reductions throughout the country.Meanwhile the Revenue has launched several investigations into payments going back several years. However Co Donegal does not feature in those.LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW © 2012 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law. Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily  DONEGAL GAA REFEREES COULD STRIKE OVER ‘PALTRY’ MATCH PAYMENTS was last modified: March 1st, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL GAA REFEREES COULD STRIKE OVER ‘PALTRY’ MATCH PAYMENTSlast_img read more
