Reaction to the abolishing of the Hastings Cup

There were 21 motions up for discussion at the GAA’s special congress at Croke Park last weekend. It was decided that the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship will undergo radical change in 2018 as a result of the GAA’s Special Congress at Croke Park. Central Council’s motion, which proposed that the Leinster and Munster Championships be played on a round robin basis, was passed and the vote and will come into effect next year.

An other motion passed saw the abolishment of all tournaments over the under 16 grade. This will affect the Hastings cup and Longford GAA secretary Peter Reilly has been explaining to Shannonside FM’s Dave Hooper that they are disappointed with the news.
