New GAA president Larry McCarthy has named his first committees for the next three years. The CCCC, CHC and CAC have to be filled immediately, as they form the basic architecture of the disciplinary system.

Former Wexford chair Derek Kent takes over the CCCC whereas solicitors Brian Rennick and Matt Shaw have swapped committees. Rennick moves from the CAC to the CHC and Shaw goes in the other direction.

The latter is a former secretary of the DRA while Rennick made a mark in the GAA’s disciplinary affairs with a devastating minority opinion in the authority’s clearing of Dublin’s Diarmuid Connolly before the 2015 All-Ireland semi-final replay against Mayo.

McCarthy has delivered on his promise to include a woman on all of his committees with Mary Judge, Aoife Farrelly and Julie Galbraith appointed.

Former county footballers, Martin McHugh, All-Ireland medallist with Donegal and manager of the Cavan side that won the 1997 Ulster championship, and Meath’s Séamus Kenny will both sit on the CCCC.

Former All-Ireland hurling referee Michael Wadding has been appointed to the CHC.
