Meath agree to replay


Meath have agreed to play Antrim in a replay of the Christy Ring Cup final but only if the game is played at Croke Park on Saturday week.

The Royals were declared the winners after their 2-18 to 1-20 win over Antrim on Saturday but it subsequently emerged that referee John O’Brien had miscalculated the scoreline. The correct scoreline was 1-20 to 2-17 and the Central Competitions Control Committee ordered a replay to take place this weekend at Pairc Esler in Newry.

The Meath County Board met on Wednesday to discuss the situation and, after consulting with the management and players, they have agreed to replay the game, but have requested the tie be played at Croke Park on Saturday week.

“We are happy to confirm that Meath, in the interest of hurling and fair play, will agree to replay the Christy Ring Cup hurling final against Antrim,” a statement from the Meath County Board said.

“We have requested that with regard to player welfare and appropriate preparation, that the game be played on Saturday June 18.

“We have also requested that this game be played in Croke Park, as befits the status of a national final.”
