RTÉ is reporting that the horse racing magnate will hand out a total €3.2million between all 32 counties with the instructions the figure is to be divided equally among their local clubs. 

A letter to each county board states the money is for the continued development of Gaelic Games in the country.

The multi-millionaire has long been a financial backer of GAA in his native Limerick. He decided to make the gesture on the back of the Treaty’s Liam MacCarthy Cup victory last month.
