The possibility of rugby and soccer being played at Croke Park took a big step step forward when the power of the Association's Motions Committee was reduced at the GAA Special Congress.

Motions brought by eight counties last year to open up Croke Park were deemed out of order on a technicality but because of this weekend's ruling, that will never happen again.

From now on any ruled out of order will be returned the county board in question with instructions on how to present it properly.
