Football on GAA's radar

CLAREMAN Simon Moroney will be a busy man. Having already been parachuted in by the GAA to keep an eye on Kildare's financial situation, the former Munster Council secretary was yesterday confirmed as the new chairman of the CCCC.

Regarded as a very capable administrator, new president Liam O'Neill has put him in charge of the association's most important committee.

Eugene McGee, meanwhile, will head up a committee charged with carrying out a review of Gaelic football.

"I'm in no rush with this -- this is not a quick fix," said O'Neill yesterday. "I just want to see how people feel about Gaelic football and where it's going. Because Gaelic football does not just belong to those who play at inter-county level, it's not just the inter-county game." Indeed it isn't.
