It was far from perfect, but the GAA has missed a golden opportunity by not voting in Proposal B

My immediate reaction after I learned that yesterday’s Special Congress had failed to give its seal of approval to Proposal B in relation to an overhaul of the All-Ireland Football Championship was to think that once again the GAA has kicked the can further down the road.

I must say I am hugely disappointed at the outcome of the Congress which I initially thought would prove a source of encouragement and indeed enterprise going forward.
