Camogie officials confirm Tipperary as winners of League game in Limerick

Camogie officials have confirmed that Tipperary defeated Limerick in Sunday's National League Division 1 fixture at the LIT Gaelic Grounds.

There was confusion after the full-time whistle as supporters and media believed that Tipperary had won the game however it is understood that the match referee, Andrew Larkin, deemed the game a draw (1-7 to 0-10).

National officials commenced a review of the result Sunday night and the findings were confirmed at 3.45pm yesterday with Croke Park chiefs confirming that Tipperary had won by a point (1-6 to 0-10).

A statement from the Camogie Association read: "Upon review by the referee, in consultation with his umpires and match officials, of the scoring in yesterday’s Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League Division 1 Group 2 fixture between Limerick v Tipperary we can now confirm the official match result as Limerick 1-6 Tipperary 0-10 resulting in a one-point victory for Tipperary.

"We would like to thank all involved for their patience regarding this matter."

Tipperary chairman Denis Lenihan has explained that the confusion around the result developed long after the final whistle.

"The scoreboard at the game had it as Tipperary winning by a point (1-6 to 0-10) and there was nothing controversial or uncertain about any of the scores.

The first I knew about it all was when I got a call then on Sunday evening about an hour or two later telling me that the referee had it as a draw.

"We contacted Croke Park straight away as we were adamant that we had won the game by a point.

"Thankfully the game was recorded on video so we were able to provide that to them.

"It was plain to see that we had won the game by one point, as the scoreboard had shown."I understand that the officials watched back on Monday and were able to account for all the Tipperary scores and confirm our victory."

Mr Lenihan also praised the work done by GAA and Croke Park officials which saw the camogie game as a curtain raiser to the Allianz Hurling League clash of Limerick and Galway at the Treaty City venue.

"It is excellent, it really generates great interest in camogie for fans and for younger players. Hopefully, we will see much more of these kinds of opportunities for the sport in the years ahead."
