Meath delegates to this weekends special GAA congress, will back Proposal B in the debate over alterations to the All Ireland football championships.
A statement from the county committee says, ‘After consulting with all our stakeholders such as players, coaches, club delegates, and the officers of the County Committee, Meath GAA has decided to back ‘Proposal B’ at the GAA Special Congress.
‘We believe that supporting this proposal is in the best interest of the members of Meath GAA and the wider GAA community’.
Proposal B urges that provincial Leagues should replace the current Allianz League in the spring. The All-Ireland Championship will be played on a League basis with the top five teams in Division One along with the Division Two table-toppers qualifying for All-Ireland Quarter-Finals.
Second and third-placed Division Two teams as well as Division Three and Four winners would go through to preliminary Quarter-Finals with the winners of these games to fill the remaining two spots in the last-eight.
The Tailteann Cup line-up would comprise those Division Three and Division Four teams who don’t qualify for the knockout stages of the All-Ireland Championship.
