Cork GAA forum asks for club backing

The Cork GAA Clubs’ Forum have called on all Leeside clubs to turn out in numbers and vote for change at tomorrow’s county convention.

The group, formed as an independent body looking for reform in Cork GAA in the wake of the last strike, have five motions on the clár at convention.

The forum submitted seven motions to the County Board following a report they compiled over the summer, though two of the motions were not accepted.

Yesterday, the clubs involved in submitting these rejected motions decided not to appeal to the Munster Council, which would have led to the postponement of convention. The forum are instead focusing on the five issues on the agenda.

The most high profile is a vote on whether junior clubs should be allowed to send a delegate to all County Board meetings. Currently two delegates from each of the eight divisions represent the views of junior clubs.

A statement issued to the Evening Echo last night explained the forum’s stance.

“We call on all those who have the well being of the association at heart to attend and ensure that these motions receive the necessary votes to have them implemented.

“It is up to the clubs, the bedrock of the GAA to have your voice heard. “Clubs you can achieve your objective by sending your full quota of delegates (two per affiliation).

“Convention can be a watershed in Cork GAA where a united county implements meaningful democratic changes that need not be feared by anyone.”
