A bid to stop the use of secret ballots when voting on motions was defeated at a special convention in Thurles last night.

The proposal from Carrick Swans followed a ruling at last year’s county convention where a secret ballot was used during the motion on the rebranding of the Seamus O’Riain championship.

Last night’s gathering in the Dome saw the motion defeated by 59 votes to 35.
