The CCCC Have Made A Decision On The Christy Ring Cup Final

Meath Antrim Christy Ring Cup hurling

The CCCC has made a decision that Antrim and Meath will replay the controversial Christy Ring Cup final, it has been confirmed this afternoon.

Meath won the game by a point on Saturday evening in Croke Park, but it soon became clear in the aftermath that the score was incorrectly recorded, and the match was in fact level.

Meath were awarded the cup, but they now must do it all over again, in order to claim the Christy Ring Cup and win the right to compete in the Liam McCarthy Cup next season.

While there was much debate as to what should happen on the subject, most were in agreement that a replay was the fairest result.

On the Sunday Game, Anthony Daly forwarded the notion of promoting both teams to the Liam McCarthy Cup next season. However, this was ruled out this morning by GAA president Aogán Ó Fearghaíl.

Brian Barry of Pundit Arena wrote yesterday that despite the obvious injustice, not allowing the result to stand may open a procedural can of worms for the GAA, and the result must stand in the interest of consistency.

However, we are set for a replay, the details of which have not yet been announced.

Update:

The replay will take place in Newry this Saturday, 11th June at 7pm.
