GAA Congress

The GAA Annual Congress will take place in Croke Park, Dublin on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd February. Among the motions to be considered is Motion no. 42: Racist and Sectarian Abuse which, if passed, will give the referee the power to send off a player who uses racist or sectarian language. The rule, as it stands, doesn’t explicitly state that such abusive language is a sending off offence.
