Finishing on the Day -
« on: July 05, 2018, 07:05:30 PM »
Here is the link from GAA website.

Note that the football free taking contest will have kicks from 33m out (top of the D).

RTE article states kicks will be from the 45...https://www.rte.ie/sport/gaa/2018/0705/976624-free-taking-comp/

Hopefully the referees will be aware of the rules of the competition and have the kicks taken from the correct distance.

When I was in a free taking comp, albeit at schools level, it was from the 45. Maybe they’ve changed it to the 33 but I’m almost certain it was initially from te 45, think I seen it from the 45 at inter county too.
You can forget about Sean Cavanagh as far as he's a man!

That was changed to the " D" thingy a few months into the year.
