GAA DELEGATES HAVE voted this morning by an overwhelming margin to introduce a clock-hooter system for senior inter-county championship games in hurling and football.
84.2% of delegates voted in favour at 2014 GAA Congress in Croke Park with 15.8% of delegates voting against the motion.
The motion was number 3 on the agenda and read in full:
“A public time-clock shall be used at Croke Park and in all Grounds used for the Provincial and All-Ireland Series Senior Football and Hurling Championship Games, the latter for the Sam Maguire and Liam McCarthy Cups.”
The clock-hooter system was trialled for the first time yesterday at the Sigerson Cup semi-finals at Queen’s University in Belfast.
