Rules: Three new rules will come into effect next season in inter county football for 2020; they were passed at a special congress last Saturday week in Corks Pairc Ui Chaoimh.  The sin bin will be when a player receives a black card he will spend ten minutes in the bin, the advanced mark for a clean catch will also come into effect and all kick outs will be taken from the 20 meter line. 

New Grounds: Louth GAA will launch a ‘dual house draw’ this month in a bid to raise finance for their €12 million stadium development in Dundalk. It is hoped all 40 Louth clubs will partake in the fundraiser, with tickets costing €100 each, although there will be no commission or bonuses for doing so. The prizes are a house in Blackrock and another in Drogheda with a third prize of €10,000. Up to a maximum of 25,000 tickets will be made available for purchase, roughly 20 percent of which will be put for sale online, between October and next Easter.
