Four players were sent off and officials are expected to release a statement within the next week.
This weekend, football is the dominant game with Kilrossanty and Nire meeting in the first of the SFC semi-finals at Fraher Field, Dungarvan tomorrow (3.30).
The latter, beaten by Stradbally in last year’s decider are desperate to capture the ultimate honours in 2004, to add to their U21 title. They enter the game as warm favourites. And it is little wonder. Defenders David Ryan and Michael Byrne won All-Ireland JFC medals this year while Shane Walsh and Connie Power are established members of the county senior side.
Kilrossanty though are formidable opponents. Mattie and Jacko Kiely, Roger Power, and goalkeeper Alfie Kirwan were also members of the All-Ireland winning team.
The Nire’s last won the title four years ago while Kilrossanty last enjoyed such success in 1989. The latter’s wait looks set to continue.
The West Waterford IHC final between Shamrocks and Ring will precede the senior tie at 2pm. The more experienced Shamrocks will be the marginal favourites but they’ll need county star Eoin Murphy to be at his inspirational best if they are to defeat a young Gaeltacht side.
