League Notes: GAA Side Monaghan's Conor McManus Urges New CPA Not To Strike

Gaelic Athletic Association side Monaghan captain Conor McManus believes that the newly formed Club Players Association "should not engage in strike action." McManus "happens to be closely aligned to Declan Brennan, the founder and secretary of the CPA," the organization set up over the winter to "fix the fixtures." McManus said, "Everyone is aware that there are issues there with the fixtures. I’m assuming everybody is in the one boat in terms of getting a solution to it all, so the CPA can only help that along. Everybody is in agreement what needs to be done with the calendar. The solution is fairly simple: just tighten up the county schedule and away you go" (LONDON TIMES, 1/11).
