ROSCOMMON GAA HAVE this evening released a statement insisting Dublin supporters weren’t charged for the use of a complimentary bus service provided by the county board this afternoon.

Dublin fans were forced to make a late change to their travel plans after the Allianz League clash between Jim Gavin’s men and Roscommon was switched from Dr Hyde Park to Carrick-on-Shannon.

In an effort to accommodate supporters, Roscommon GAA announced complimentary bus transfers to the new venue would be provided only for claims to be made that Dublin fans were then charged €10 for the service.

But Roscommon GAA have moved to clarify the situation by denying any fans were charged for the bus journey after carrying out a full investigation.

“Following a full investigation Roscommon GAA can categorically state that no person was charged to travel on the complementary bus service provided by Roscommon GAA,” the statement reads.

“Roscommon GAA has however discovered that other people hired buses from Roscommon to Carrick on Shannon. We hope the matter is now closed.”

Dublin recorded their seventh victory of the campaign at Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada thanks to 1-8 from Dean Rock.
