Limerick train ahead of ruling
LIMERICK'S minor hurlers are understood to have trained again last night as they wait for their County Board's meeting with the Disputes Resolution Authority.
The hurlers were defeated in the All-Ireland minor semi-final clash with Galway and are hoping for a replay after Barry Nash's first-minute point was given as wide. Referee Barry Kelly consulted Hawkeye following consultation with his umpires, and despite the graphic showing the ball passed between the posts, a malfunction with the system incorectly awarded a wide.
Galway ended up winning by 0-23 to 0-20 after extra-time, but Limerick argue that they would have won in normal time if the point had been correctly adjudged. It is understood that the hurlers also trained on Saturday and are keeping sharp in the hope that the result will be overturned and a re-fixture awarded.
That replay would prospectively take place on Sunday week, which is the date Galway are due to take on Waterford in the All-Ireland Final.
The CCCC and the CAC have already rejected the appeal, but the DRA offers the Treaty one last chance of a successful hearing.
