THE GAA HAVE confirmed that this weekend will see them impose new rules around the size of bags people may carry with them to events in Croke Park.

The 82,300-capacity Dublin venue says that they have undertaken a review of their safety procedures with relevant authorities and have decided to ban ‘large bags’ and backpacks from being brought to the stadium from this Sunday (25 June).
