A major think-in on the future of hurling is to be held on December 5 as the GAA attempts to plan a strategy for the development of the game.
It will be hosted by the Games Development Committee and, as well as discussing formal proposals arising from soundings taken around the country, it will also consider ideas submitted from individuals and other interested parties.
“We're looking for fresh thinking from whatever source we can get it. People are always happy to tell you what they think is the best way forward for hurling so this is a chance for them to offer their views,” said Liam O'Neill, chairman of the committee.
“What we're really looking for are new ideas that can be implemented. It's all very fine coming up with grand plans but there's not much point if they can't be put into practice for various reasons. It's important to remember that change is a process.“
