GAA special congress approved the move of Galway and Antrim into the Leinster championship from next year. A large majority of the delegates voted in favour of the move despite the self centred pleas against from Wexford, Offaly and Dublin. It’s a great move, should lead to a very exciting championship next year and now Galway will have no excuses for not delivering on their underage talent.
New disciplinary procedures are to be trialled at the start of the year. Getting a yellow card means you’ll be sent off to be replaced by another player. Seems an awful rule to be introducing to hurling. Whatever about the slugfest bore that is football, hurling has no need for new disciplinary rules - unfortunately hurling is still tied to football so the same rules end up applying to both.
The call for under 21 to be changed to under 20 never made it.
with the Galway/Antrim move and the discipline changes so he didn’t want to push it by shoving in the under 21 aswell.
