There's Major Controversy Brewing After The Christy Ring Cup Final

There's Major Controversy Brewing After The Christy Ring Cup Final
By PJ Browne

Meath captain James Toher lifted the Christy Ring Cup at Croke Park this evening.

The thing is, there's a possibility that Meath did not win the game.

After 70 minutes, the scoreboard at Croke Park read a one point win for the Royal county.

Since then though, controversy has begun to boil.

According to Des Cahill on Radio One this evening, RTÉ reviewed video of the game - which was broadcast live on TG4 - and they believe that the result should have been a draw and so extra time should have been played.

Journalist Francis Mooney, who was at the game, was interviewed on Radio One. He believed the Croke Park scoreboard was the source of the problem.

Several other journalists who were also at the game believe it ended in a draw too.
