Clara appeal sees senior league defeat to Tullaroan overturned

Tullaroan's recent victory over Clara in the St Canices Credit Union Senior Hurling League has been squashed after a successful appeal by the Clara club.

After the Group A clash appeared to end in a draw last Saturday evening, it later transpired that Tullaroan were awarded a 0-24 to 2-17 victory.

This went against the opinion of most people that were in attendance at St John's Park and while referee Gay Rafter did miscalculate on the night, the use of video evidence has ensured that the game is now a draw (0-24 to 2-18)

The result may yet be a crucial one with both sides sitting joint top of the group with three points each.

The two teams continue their campaign this weekend with Clara meeting Erins Own in Muckalee on Saturday at 12.30 while Tullaroan face Mullinavat in Hugginstown on Sunday at 1pm.
