Annual Congress 2020 - The motions explained


By John Harrington

This Friday and Saturday February 28 and 29 the GAA's Annual Congress takes place in Croke Park.

A total of 63 motions will go before the delegates to be debated and voted on.

At the bottom of this article you can view and download the motions as they will appear before the delegates.

You can also download some useful documents to read alongside examining the motions - GAA Official Guide Parts 1 & 2, Ard Stirthir Tom Ryan's 2019 Annual Report, and the GAA's 2019 Financial Report.

Below is a simplified guide to the motions to be dealt with this weekend.

It's worth noting that there are no new rule changes proposed by any motion this year, only amendments to current rules. Any motions passed in terms of rule amendments will be implemented a month after Congress subject to Central Council.

MOTION 1

This motion proposes to give the sidline official the power to bring to the attention of the referee, during a break in play, any instances of foul play which have not been noticed by the referee.

MOTION 2

This motion seeks to give team captains and managers the power to ask the referee to consult with the Hawkeye Score Detection System and/or his fellow officials to clarify if any of the match officials erred in making a decision in relation to the validity of a score or the awarding of a free/sideline/wide/45 or 65 or square infringement. This would be limited to two failed requests per team and the request must be made before the play resumes.

MOTION 3

This motion proposes that a referee must first give permission to a team medical officer or another authorised official before they can enter the field of play to examine an injured player.

MOTION 4

Under current rule in both Gaelic Football and Hurling you can carry the ball in your hand for a maximum of four steps before you play it. This proposed rule amendment would stipulate instead that you can carry the ball for a maximum of two seconds in Gaelic Football and Hurling in your hands before you play it.

MOTION 5

This motion seeks to extend the rule that allows a temporary substitution if a player has a blood injury. If passed, you will also be allowed to bring on a temporary substitute for a player who has suffered a 'head injury'.

MOTION 6

This motion proposes a rule amendment that any player who receives a kick-out cannot pass it back to his goalkeeper. The penalty proposed for a breach of this rule would be a free-kick awarded to the opposition from the position the goalkeeper recieves the pass, or if the goalkeeper is inside the 13m line when in receipt of the pass the free will be from the 13m line opposite where the foul occurs.

A total of 63 motions will be voted on at Annual Congress in Croke Park this year. A total of 63 motions will be voted on at Annual Congress in Croke Park this year.

MOTION 7

This motion relates to the advanced mark in Gaelic Football and comes from the Standing Committee on Playing Rules. At the moment if a player wins an advanced mark he can elect to play on and must be allowed to proceed unhindered for four steps by the opposition if he does play on. This motion proposes to allow the opposition to tackle the player immediately if he wins a mark inside the large or small rectangle and elects to play on.

MOTION 8

This motion relates to the duties of linesmen and the sideline official and puts forward two proposals. It gives linesmen the authority to, having consulted with the referee, indicate to a sideline official the amount of additional time to be played. Currently sidline officals are only appointed for senior inter-county championship matches and League Games. This motion also proposes that a sideline official can also be appointed by the committee in charge for all other games.

MOTION 9

This motion proposes giving awarding two points to the scoring team when a ball is struck over the bar and between the posts in hurling from a sideline cut.

MOTION 10

This motion proposes extending the duration of adult club matches from 60 minutes to 70 minutes.

MOTION 11
