They’re not of seismic impact but two decisions that GAA bodies took within the last year were reversed at a Central Council meeting last weekend.

The decision taken by Central Council last year and rubber-stamped at Congress in February to prohibit joint-recipients of a cup/trophy of a presentation was dead before it ever got off the ground anyway as clubs kept up with the practice of sending two players, more often than not joint captains, up to do the honours with impunity.
