Successful objection to Limerick club championship result

DROMCOLLOGHER-BROADFORD have been successful in their objection against the result of a Limerick IHC game.

The west Limerick club lodged their objection against the result of their round two Limerick IHC game with Dromin-Athlacca.

At the final whistle in Feenagh Monaleen referee Kieran Flaherty deemed Dromin-Athlacca 2-15 to 1-17 winners.

However, Drom-Broadford claimed the final score should have been 2-15 to 1-18 - a draw.

They objected to the referee’s score and Limerick GAA CCC’s deemed their objection should be heard.

Last Thursday night their objection under rule 7.10 was heard and they were successful in getting the result altered to a draw 2-15 to 1-18.

An Eoin O’Leary goal left the score at half-time Dromin-Athlacca 1-7 to Drom-Broadford 0-8. Twelve minutes into the second half a Ray Lynch goal put Drom-Broadford ahead and when substitute Micheal Brosnan pointed in the game’s 47th minute it was thought the score was 1-15 to 1-11 in favour of Drom-Broadford. However, at this point the referee, despite protests from Drom-Broadford players and officials, asked that the scoreboard in Feenagh be changed to read 1-14 to 1-11. The game continued and David Reidy was to get the last score, which the referee deemed the winner for Dromin-Athlacca and Drom-Broadford insisted was the equaliser.
