Document of 25 proposals to arrest the decline of Cork GAA distributed at County Board meeting

Cork GAA coaching officer Kevin O’Donovan has created a document of 25 proposals to arrest the decline of hurling and football in the county, writes Eoghan Cormican.

In the 16-page document circulated to club delegates at the end of tonight's County Board meeting unbeknownst to the top table, O’Donovan said there is little doubt that an urgent need for significant improvement at all levels in Cork GAA now prevails.
