Kilmacud appeal to be heard in the coming days

THE GAA’s Central Appeals Committee (CAC) have confirmed Kilmacud Croke’s appeal against a replay of the All-Ireland Club final with Glen being ordered.

“In response to queries received, the GAA can confirm that an appeal has been lodged from CLG Cill Mochuda na Crócaigh against the decision of the CCCC to
order a replay of the AIB All-Ireland Club Football final,” in a statement released on Friday afternoon. “The CAC will hear the appeal in the coming days.”

The on-going saga continues after Kilmacud defeated Glen, 1-11 to 1-9, in the All-Ireland Club final.

The Crokes had 17 players on the pitch as Danny Tallon stood over a 45 as Glen rolled the dice on their last chance to grab a game-saving goal.

When the ball ended up going wide after Conleth McGuckian’s snapshot, referee Derek O’Mahony blew the final whistle on goalkeeper Connlan Bradley’s kick-out.

Glen – after seeking clarification from the GAA – lodged an objection to the concluding stages of the game.

Kilmacud lodged a counter appeal and both clubs were asked to attend Croke Park on  Monday.

After deliberation, the CCCC ordered a replay.

With the Crokes now lodging an appeal it leaves any final conclusion on the matter in uncertainty again.
