THE ULSTER COUNCIL last night rejected appeals from two Donegal clubs who claimed that motions were passed after incorrect procedures at last month’s county convention.
Burt and Killybegs lodged separate appeals to the provincial body last month following the December 13 Convention in the Mount Errigal Hotel.
They claim that as many as 13 motions were discussed and voted on without having been seconded.
The clubs argued that this was in contravention of standing orders.
Burt and Killybegs representatives had separate hearings with the Ulster Council while the Donegal County Board was represented by its Chairman, Sean Dunnion, and Secretary, Aideen Gillen.
The Ulster Hearings Committee rejected the appeals. The clubs were notified this morning of the outcome and are awaiting further explanation of the decision.
On the day, a host of motions were the subject of retrospective seconding.
There had been concerns that a special convention would have to be scheduled were the Ulster Hearings Committee to have upheld the appeals.Tags:
