FORMER Donegal football star Martin McHugh has been appointed to the high-powered Central Competitions Controls Committee of the GAA.
The Kilcar man has been confirmed on the new CCCC, which was installed after Saturday’s annual GAA Congress.
McHugh is one of three Donegal people installed to new committees with former County Board Chairrman Sean Dunnion to sit on the Central Hearings Committee and Buncrana’s Julie Galbraith on the Central Appeals Committee.
McHugh, a 1992 All-Ireland winner, will work under the new CCCC Chair, the Leinster vice-chair Derek Kent.
McHugh is joined by John Halbert (Cork), Mary Judge (Galway), and ex-Meath captain Seamus Kenny on the new CCCC, which is to be in position for the duration of the new GAA President Larry McCarthy.
The primary function of the CCC is the setting fixtures at a national level.
They also review referee’s reports, applying any suspensions that may arise coming from sendings-off, or cumulative black cards, while they are also responsible for reviewing footage and determining whether disciplinary action is required.
A four-time Donegal SFC winner with Kilcar and a two-time All-Star, McHugh was the Cavan manager when they won the Ulster SFC in 1997.Tags:
