THE Dunsany club had mixed fortunes when proposing motions to the adjourned convention in Aras Tailteann on Monday night.
A motion dealing with the transfer of players was lost following a show of hands, but delegate Richard Harrahill had better luck with a motion concerning the eligibility of players for county teams and development squads if they refuse to line out with their club.
The motion was passed by a large majority and in future players who do not line out with their club for a valid reason shall not be eligible for county development squads or county teams until such time as they resume playing with their club.
Also passed was a motion dealing with nominations and motions for annual convention. In future the management committee will assess nominations and notify clubs of those who are eligible and willing to run for positions. Motions, regulations and bye-laws will also be scrutinised and those not in order will not be allowed on the Clár.
A proposal from Ballinlough that delegates to the county committee could only represent their club for a maximum of five years was lost.
A motion from the Walterstown club that player team sheets could be written in English or Irish was met with stiff opposition from several delegates and didn't receive a seconder.
A Drumconrath motion, that in both adult and underage intercounty teams the name of the club that a player is registered with is the name that should appear in all official documents and match-day programmes, was passed.
Moynalvey delegate Peter Collins said last year's All-Ireland Minor Football Final was a big day for their club, with two representatives, including the captain, and it was a stab in the back that Moynalvey's name wasn't after the players' names in the match programme.
However it was pointed out that Moynalvey didn't have a minor team, but were joined with Blackhall Gaels under the name of Jenkinstown Gaels.
