Last year I presented a list of some of the sports books that received favourable treatment from the Revenue Commissioners (here). At the time I expressed surprise that Brian Cody did not appear on the list. I was also surprised at the lack of more recent GAA people on the list. Things seem to have changed. The updated list of GAA related sports writing means that those puzzles are no longer really an issue. Cody makes the list as does DJ Carey, Sean Og O'Halpin and Donal Og Cusack. In fact, gaelic games sports writing dominates the list. The first table below presents gaelic games writing.
It is interesting to compare the list of GAA books with that of other sports. Allowing that I might have missed a couple of sports books from the extensive list of all books gaining favourable tax treatment, it seem that there is as many gaelic games books as all other sports books on the list. The list of other sports books is presented below.
