Limerick secretary Mike O'Riordan has voiced his opposition to changes to the structure of the All-Ireland SFC.

In his report to today's county convention in Cappamore, O'Riordan makes the case for a two-tier football championship rather than the new Super 8 format.

"There should be a two-tier system in the senior football championship, graded through the National Football League, where counties would have a realistic chance of competing," he writes.

The county secretary also believes it's wrong that players eligible for U20 will be barred from playing at this grade if they are on the county senior panel.

"In 2018, the new U20 football championship replaces the U21 championship. This championship will be of little support to developing counties like Limerick, as U20 players who make the senior team will be unavailable to the U20 team for selection," he complains.
