The British Army Are Considering Starting An Official GAA Team

The British Army Are Considering Starting An Official GAA Team
By Conor O'Leary

The British Army are considering forming an official GAA team next year. A regiment of the army - the Irish guards - will find out this week whether their application to the London GAA will be accepted.

London GAA clubs will meet on Monday night this week to decide whether to allow the army team to compete at junior level next year.

It makes a change from an old GAA rule that banned members of the British security forces from joining the association.

Rule 21 was only abolished in 2001, just two weeks after the PSNI was formed.

It's being reported that support for the Irish Guards' application is evenly split, and they decision could go either way.
