Camogie Association Comes In For Further Criticism Over Scheduling Of Quarter-Final

The Camogie Association announced today that it had offered a playoff game to Dublin and Clare rather the coin toss which had been scheduled to separate the two sides.

Dublin and Clare finished level on points following their group stage games and according to the rules set down a coin toss would be used to decide which of them would progress to the All-Ireland quarter-final.

After months of training for the Championship, both counties decided that this method was not good enough and this morning announced that they would not participate in the coin toss.

This led to an impasse, which resulted in the Camogie Association caving and offering the playoff.

Clare and Dublin are now left with just three days to prepare for the game which is scheduled for 2pm on Saturday at Semple Stadium.

The winners of that game will have even less time for their All-Ireland quarter-final against Wexford. That game has been pencilled in for Monday, August 3rd.

This scheduling has caused further criticism of the Camogie Assocation.

Seeing as the All-Ireland semi-finals are scheduled to be played until August 15th, surely further preparation time for the quarter-final could be given to the winner of the Clare and Dublin playoff.
