Interesting Feature in today's Irish News about the Rates Rebate Scandal available to everybody it seems except the GAA . A proposal presented to Moyle Council in the Glens of Antrim could see the District hand back ‘Rate Monies’ to GAA Clubs in the area – essentially awarding them rates exemption status via the back door. The move would circumvent rules forcing GAA Clubs to continue paying property rates while Orange Halls remain exempt .This proposal is the brainchild of Independent Councillor Padraig Mc Shane and it has the potential to set a precedent that would allow local authorities throughout the North to payback rates to GAA Clubs in any District. I wonder why the shinners and the SDLP dropped the ball on this one ? and why it was left to a local Independent Councilor to highlight the issue .
