Westmeath delegates reject super eight proposal


Westmeath GAA officials were accused of trying to “ram through” proposals in favour of the so-called super eight at last week’s County Board meeting in TEG Cusack Park.

There were controversial exchanges between club delegates and officers when it was announced that no debate would be permitted on the new proposals.

County Board Chairman, Sean Sheridan advised that clubs had already debated the motion at a meeting in the Annebrook House Hotel, at which GAA Director General, Pauric Duffy was a special guest.

Tom Hunt of Mullingar Shamrocks argued that club delegates were entitled to discuss the motion from Central Council. “You are trying to ram through the super eight,” he remarked.
