Christy Cup Final controversy at an end as new replay date confirmed
Meath and Antrim will go head-to-head again16:18 Thursday 9 June 2016, 16:18 9 Jun 2016
The GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee have agreed to postpone this Saturday's Christy Ring Cup final between Meath and Antrim in Newry.
The match will now take place on Saturday, the 25th of June in Croke Park, with a 5pm throw-in.
The original match which took place this weekend was chalked off over a scoreboard error which had awarded the win to Meath when the match had in fact finished in a draw.
In a statement however, the Central Competitions Committee confirmed a new date for the match a week after that.
"The Central Competitions Control Committee met this morning to consider a formal request from the Meath County Committee for a postponement of the Christy Ring Cup Final Replay between Meath and Antrim scheduled for this Saturday evening, June 11th.
"Given the unique circumstances involved, the C.C.C.C. agreed to postpone the game. It will now take place on Saturday, June 25th in Croke Park at 5pm."
