Burns fury

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT -

GAA Chair­man on the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee on Play­ing Rules, Jar­lath Burns, (in­set) has hit out at the GPA’S role in the de­ci­sion. “They were told about it on the 5th of Au­gust. The fol­low­ing week at a Cen­tral Coun­cil meet­ing, they said noth­ing,” he told the GAA Hour pod­cast. “There was a meet­ing on the 29th of Oc­to­ber af­ter an ex­ten­sive doc­u­ment which their rep­re­sen­ta­tive was at. This was a Cen­tral Coun­cil meet­ing where only one is­sue was dis­cussed on the agenda. They said noth­ing. “It’s their job to con­sult with play­ers, with their well-staffed sec­re­tariat. For our county play­ers to get a What­sapp three weeks be­fore Congress.. it’s a player wel­fare is­sue. “What were they at? For me, that’s not ac­cept­able.”
