Dublin manager Gregory McGonigle has confirmed that the Sky Blues will consider an appeal after Carla Rowe had a legitimate first-half point disallowed in yesterday's TG4 All-Ireland ladies senior football final against Cork.

Dublin's sense of grievance was obvious at full-time as just a point separated the sides - Cork winning a low-scoring encounter by 1-7 to 1-6.

"I just talked to our administrator Patricia Monahan and we'll have a quick chat. This is not to take away from Cork," said McGonigle.

"If there is a right there then I do believe we should be offered a replay. There's possibly a loophole where they mightn't be a replay."

However, a Ladies Gaelic Football Association spokesperson admitted that any replay request is unlikely to succeed.

The spokesperson explained that using HawkEye for Ladies football championship games was discussed at Central Council level earlier this year.

"The decision was taken that in order to have a level playing field for all teams that we wouldn't use HawkEye."
