Burt and Killybegs taking motions case to DRA

Donegal clubs Burt and Killybegs have joined forces and are taking their  case against procedural issues at last December’s  Donegal GAA Convention to the GAA’s Disputes Resolution Authority.

The clubs are taking their case to the DRA after they lost their appeals to the Ulster Council’s Hearings' Committee.

The provincial body  ruled against the clubs and instead endorsed the procedures at the Donegal Convention and ruled that no laws were broken.

The clubs claim that a number of motions passed at the Convention had not been formally proposed and seconded and as a consequence were not properly passed into law

The motions in question related to the thorny issue of first club and subsequent allegiance thereafter.

Each appeal to the DRA must be accompanied by a non refundable fee of €1,000.
