DRA02/2008 IT Carlow v Comhairle Ardoideachais & CAC – Statement

At a hearing today before a DRA Tribunal the CAC accepted that their decision, allowing an Appeal by Garda College GAA Club against a decision of Comhairle Ardoideachais (CA) that the Garda College Club had played an ineligible player (Graham Dillon) in a Sigerson Cup game, should be quashed because of a procedural irregularity.

The CAC, Carlow IT, CA, the Garda College and the player in question then agreed that the DRA should determine whether the player was entitled to play. Following a hearing, the Tribunal held that Mr. Dillon was entitled to play and, consequently, the objection by Carlow IT to his participation in the Sigerson Cup competiton fails.
