You are pointing to the fact that the Galway ladies secretary is an amadan that eloquently outlines the case against her own position as some sort of support for this continued partition? You are aware, surely, that the more enlightened Clare Chairman and Anna Geary directly contradict this position in the same article?

I'm pointing out that the GAA are ready when the LGFA are.

This crap is popping up more and more recently.a couple of years ago there were headlines made when the men's prize for a poc fada competition was a lot better than the woman's prize,I think it was a holiday compared to a tracksuit,something like that.
    it was pointed out that the gaa didn't run the ladies competition,and that it was the camogie association that organised the ladies prize.was that a suitable explanation?of course it wasn't.you still had a load of eejits saying 'ok..yeah..but still...'.much the same as the original poster.
   The ladies footballers and camogs are well taken care of by the gaa from what I can gather.

Camogie and LGFA don't want to lose their separate funding,  while piggybacking on the GAA facilities and structures.
Simple as

And here's the best part. Camogie and LGF have been under the GAA umbrella in the USA and continental Europe for donkey's years. It actually works really well.

Agreed, the North American tournaments are great because they are combined events. There's a real buzz about them.

But Eamonn, on suspensions and the like, are they handed down by GAA NACB, or is there a separate LGFA and Camogie NACB that does that?

That's not the real GAA, all sorts of strange things happen over there. 
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

It's the NACB that handles it. The playing rules are taken from the rule books of the respective organizations, but disciplinary rules and voting rules are taken from the GAA Official Guide.
