Formal investigation into Cunningham racial abuse claims confirmed

Ulster GAA said they would base their analysis on the referee’s report from last Sunday’s Ulster final.

THE ULSTER GAA Competitions Control Committee will launch a formal investigation into claims Aaron Cunningham was racially abused during last Sunday’s Senior Football Championship final, it has been confirmed.

The announcement was made following a meeting between officials last night, where it was decided that an investigation would be launched, and based around the contents of the referee’s report from the game.

A group has been set up to look into the incident, though a date for the verdict has yet to be confirmed.

Ulster GAA have said they won’t be commenting any further on the matter until the issue is resolved.
