A busy weekend of GAA activity began on Friday evening continuing in to Saturday last as the GAA Annual Congress took place in Croke Park.

Numerous motions were debated with a Moyle Rovers motion restricting the minor grade at inter-county level to U17s and U18s being one of the notable ones which was passed.

Other notable motions to pass included a) that interfering with an opponent’s headgear be punished with a straight red card and b) that a player guilty of racist behaviour during a game be ordered off. The so called Anthony Nash motion was withdrawn before Congress and will be dealt with by Central Council. Finally, congratulations and best wishes to the new President Elect Aogán O’Farrell (Cavan).
