Last night, the fast food chain released a statement outlining the scale of their investment since 2015 and demanding to know details of how this money was spent.
The finances of Galway GAA were subject to two reviews in late 2018, one conducted by Galway GAA itself and another by accounting firm Mazars.
The use of an official credit card for personal expenses, officer expenses of €45,000 and a debt of €390,000 to Croke Park for All-Ireland final tickets were among the revelations.
A 103-acre site in Athenry that was bought in 2006 for €2.8m and earmarked for a centre of excellence was sold at a loss of almost €2m last year.
