The Donegal senior football championship could be thrown into chaos, pending the result of an appeal from defeated semi-finalists Naomh Connaill.
Last week we reported on how the club were weighing up their options after losing to Glenswilly by a point from a player who should not have been on the pitch in the first place. Today the GAA have announced they will review an appeal by the club, which could render the county final – which was won by St Eunans last Sunday – null and void.
Oisin Crawford had kicked the winning score for Glenswilly in the semi-final after coming on for Ciaran Bonner, who had received a yellow and black, meaning he should have been sent off with no replacement.
The Donegal Daily today report that the GAA has decided to review the original appeal from the club after it was last week dismissed by the Ulster Council as the deemed their paperwork to not be in order. This review will be made on Friday and Croke Park's National Central Appeals Committee could decide to send it back to Ulster Council to be heard again.
If it is upheld then both the Donegal club championship and the Ulster club championship would be up in the air, given that St Eunans are scheduled to face Fermanagh champions Roslea this Sunday.
