New vote system for GAA Congress

Electronic voting is to be introduced at next year's annual GAA Congress in Mullingar.

The new system will replace the traditional method of voting by a show of hands.

The GAA's Director of Communications Lisa Clancy said: "We want to move the GAA into a more modern era. What will happen is that you'll have a speaker up speaking and when a vote is taken, you'll be able to see the result straight away on the screen."

"It will be fast and accurate. It's a big step and we'll review it after this year's Congress."
