Have your say.

CONFUSION SURROUNDS THE destination of the Christy Ring Cup following Meath’s ‘victory’ over Antrim at Croke Park on Saturday.

The final score was announced as a 2-18 to 1-20 victory in favour of Meath but members of the media and Antrim backroom team present all believed the game had ended in a 2-17 to 1-20 draw.

GAA officials have since confirmed to The42 that a replay is likely to be ordered when the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) meets on Tuesday morning.

Meath continued their celebrations in Trim last night and the county board’s official Twitter account has continued to issue congratulations to the team following the result.

Justin McCormick works on stats with the Antrim team and has claimed that he informed GAA President Aogán Ó Fearghaíl after the game that there was an issue.

But what do you think should happen next and what’s the fairest outcome for all involved?
