Naomh Conaill’s latest appeal to Ulster a success

noamh conaillNaomh Conaill's appeal to the Ulster Council over their championship defeat to Glenswilly was successful today.

The club have been vindicated in going to the provincial body and the judgement says they were right to take the action.

The club’s appeal to the Central Appeals Committee in Croke Park last month was successful against the Ulster Council decision not to hear their original appeal on the result of the RTE Raidió na Gaeltachta Senior Championship semi-final clash.

It centred around the replacement player who was allowed to come on for Ciaran Bonner of Glenswilly, who should have been sent off after getting a yellow and black card.

Firstly it was turned down by the Donegal Competitions Control Committee and then the Ulster Council didn’t hear the club’s appeal stating it was out of order due to incorrect paperwork.

Croke Park then sent the issue back to the provincial body which resulted in today's successful outcome.

It's believed that it will have no impact on the Donegal championship as Noamh Conaill stated in recent weeks that they just sought a judgement they were right to appeal the result of the game.
