O'Fearghail rules out score error compromise

Christy Ring Cup final confusion

GAA president Aogán Ó Fearghaíl has ruled out the possibility of both Meath and Antrim being promoted to next year's Leinster championship as a compromise solution to last Saturday's Christy Ring Cup final error.

Confusion reigned in Croke Park as Meath seemingly came from behind to secure a narrow 2-18 to 1-20 victory over pre-match favourites Antrim.

However, referee John O'Brien has since admitted that he made an error and that the game actually finished in a 2-17 to 1-20 draw.

While Meath management feel there is no real appetite for a replay in either county, there had been calls for both teams to be admitted to the Lienster SHC as a compromise.

However, that suggestion has now been scuppered by O'Fearghail ahead of a meeting of the GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee.

"If the game ended in a draw, there is only one action they can take. That is not an option," he said.

"It sounds nice at times and it's lovely to be nice to everyone. I'm sure that's what people's reaction would be. However, we have to be fair and we have to be honest.

"The CCCC will consider the referee's report and will take responsibility for this matter; they won't hedge duck or dive. As I said, if the game ended in a draw, there is only one action they can take."
