A 5 year ban is being proposed at the serious end of the scale for GAA members who breach association discipline.

A maxiumum suspension may come into place for assualting or striking a referee or match official.

The new proposals are set to go to Congress next February.

Former GAA President Liam O'Neill has called for a lifetime ban for any individual who engages in assault.
