The GAA have extended the deadline for applications to become the next Director General.
The Association are searching for a successor to Paraic Duffy who will retire at the end of March.
A business degree was initially considered a vital attribute for candidates, but applicants without such a third level qualification will now be considered.
The GAA noted that the vital attribute - one of 12 - had given rise to queries.
"In response, we wish to clarify that while business experience is an important consideration and aspect of the role, applicants without a third-level business related qualification will be fully considered," a statement released this morning said.
As the job specification has been clarified, the deadline for applications has been extended.
The deadline has been put back to Friday, January 19.
