Tough stance: Cynical play surfaced in the Limerick v Waterford All-Ireland final

On foot of the GAA having announced a record annual loss of €34m (£29.2m) for 2020, some 37 motions have been tabled for a first-ever remote Annual Congress embracing Saturday and Sunday.

While some motions pertaining to the restructuring of the All-Ireland Football Championship have been deferred until a possible in-person Special Congress in the autumn, delegates will nonetheless still be confronted by a busy schedule this weekend.

Saturday's agenda includes the possible introduction of the sin bin in hurling, the split season, allowing just one captain rather than joint captains to receive a cup and limiting senior Club Championships to 16 teams.
