Kilmacud Croke's have submitted a counter-objection to the CCCC following last Sunday’s All-Ireland Club final against Glen.

The Dublin side won the controversial decider by two points, but in the final action of the game, had 17 playing members on the field.

The Derry and Ulster champions launched an objection on Tuesday night, suggesting that Crokes had breached Rule 6.44.

Both Paul Mannion and Dara Mullin had been replaced by Tom Fox and Conor Casey respectively, but neither had left the field during Danny Tallon’s final play.

Mannion was close to the sideline when making way, but it was Mullin’s position that evoked much debate, as he had lined up on the goal line.

It is the expected that the CCCC will discuss both objections within the next 24 hours before coming to a decision.
