GAA Digest: Kerry Gaelic football team faces relegation after loss
Brogan Stars in Dublin Win, McGuinness Won’t Fret Loss, Late Score Seals Cork Win, GAA Won’t Split Dublin, Munster Bests Connacht
PRESIDENT Liam O’Neill has denied that the GAA will split Dublin into two separate entities, north and south, despite recent media reports.
O’Neill said, “At underage level Dublin might feel it is of more benefit to field more than one team. As far as I’m concerned, it’s not something that’s going to be forced on them. I certainly have no appetite for it.
“If Dublin feel at underage level that it’s going to be of benefit to them I am sure that Leinster Council would be more than willing to accommodate them.
“That could be done and it’s probably in that context that it should be looked at. If it worked at underage level it could grow naturally.
“It cannot be done without the cooperation of Dublin. It can only be done, to the advantage of the organization, when Dublin feel ready for that.”
Munster Bests Connacht
MUNSTER boss Liam Sheedy says his players were delighted with their interprovincial medals after beating Connacht in Sunday’s final in Ennis.
Sheedy said, “It’s a difficult competition when you’re only together three times, and one of those was a match. But everyone we contacted had no problem coming along.
“We had a good game, a lovely day, the pitch was in good condition, and certainly from the time we had the players they were nothing but professional.
“We’re delighted with it, absolutely. It’s a national competition, a national medal and the players cherish it.”
