The GAA’s annual congress is set to take Croke Park this Friday with 62 motions due to be debated on.
A number of those up for discussion were points highlighted during conventions for Carlow and Kilkenny at the tail end of last year.
Among the highlights are motion 4 which, if passed, would allow the county boards locally to determine their own juvenile age grades, and motion 7 which looks to change the inter-county minor age grade from under 17 to under 18 while Galway are looking to enter their minor teams into either the Munster or Leinster championships.
A full list of the motions set to be voted on is available now on gaa.ie.
The Sigerson Cup Final takes place this evening between UL and UCC at WIT from 7.30.
The VERY Ireland Camogie Leagues get underway this coming Saturday and we’re back on the road with defending All-Ireland champions Kilkenny as they head to Cusack Park, Ennis, to take on Clare this Sunday.
Kilkenny were unbeaten across the league and championship last season, albeit they missed out on a place in the league final thanks to a drawn game with Cork.
Much like last season, KCLR camogie analyst and All-Ireland winning captain Áine Farrell expects to see a raft of new faces lining out for the Cats this year.
That game has a midday throw-in and is live on KCLR with thanks to Market Cross Shopping Centre and you can get a full preview on the latest Camán Caint podcast, available now wherever you do your podcast listening.
