Ard Comhairle motion would see club championship suffer – Devane

Tipperary GAA delegates travel to Croke Park today to debate and vote on proposed changes to the Senior Hurling Championship structure at Special Congress.

There are 4 motions up for discussion – one from the Ard Comhairle, and one each from Tipperary, Cork and Dublin.

The Ard Comhairle’s motion would see a round robin system in both Munster and Leinster – with the top two teams contesting the Provincial Finals.

The winners go into the All Ireland semi final, with the runners up and third place teams qualifying for the Quarter Finals.

Passing the Ard Comhairle motion would put added pressure on the club scene, cutting the timeframe of senior hurling and football championships to just 14 weeks, according to the vice chair of the Tipperary County Board.

John Devane says passing the Ard Comhairle motion wouldn’t help the club scene at all.
