Limerick lose out on appeal

LIMERICK have vowed to "go all the way" despite losing their first appeal against the controversial outcome of last Sunday's All-Ireland minor hurling semi-final.

The Shannonsiders are seeking a refixture on the premise that a blunder by Hawk-Eye's score-detection system denied them victory in normal time and led to Galway prevailing in extra-time.

But their objection was initially rebuffed by the Central Competitions Control Committee at a meeting in Thurles yesterday.

A GAA statement explained that the CCCC was precluded from considering the objection by Rule 7.10 (n) of the Official Guide, namely: "No objection or counter-objection may be submitted on grounds that a referee had incorrectly allowed or failed to allow a score."

However, Limerick county board PRO Eamonn Phelan confirmed last night that they will now take their fight to the Central Appeals Committee, adding: "We are going to go all the way with it."
