Did I see young Paul Kelly for the Galway seniors vs Mayo last weekend, I presume this means he's out of the U20 final now?

He's U20 again next year too.

I for one am delighted that rule was recinded.Kerry were badly hit by that rule.We lost all Ireland semi to Kildare in 2018 by one point who went on to win final and we could nt play Seanie O Shea or David Clifford due to rule.In hurling the rules were different.At least the Gaa realise some mistakes.

The rule shouldnt have been rescinded and it should have been in place in hurling as well

Under 20 is still a development age group. Clifford and players like him are above 20s and not using them allows another player a place in the squad/team.

I'm not sure User but hope it's gone for good.

It does allow other players in of course but damages the teams prospects. Also it can upset senior teams with some counties. Some might feel they have a better chance at u 20 grade so their senior team loses out on a few good players. That can have a detrimental effect of some of the weaker counties
