THERE’S BEEN ANOTHER twist in the 2015 All-Ireland senior camogie championship with Wexford having launched an appeal over last Saturday’s semi-final defeat to Galway.

Wexford lost out by 1-14 to 2-10 in the clash at Nowlan Park as Galway advanced to a final meeting with Cork on 12 September.

But Wexford are set to fight the result with their dispute centering on a disallowed ’45 and the amount of injury-time that was played.

Four minutes of injury-time were signalled at the end of which Wexford drew level but ultimately over six minutes were played and in the additional time, Galway’s Niamh McGrath struck the winning point.

A camogie spokesperson confirmed to The42 that Wexford have lodged an appeal under the following two rules:

  • 41.5 – Referee must not overrule two umpires
  • 41.6 – Timekeeping

The appeal has been lodged with the National Transfers Hearings and Disciplinary Committee (NTHDC).

The NTHDC have seven days to initiate a hearing once all is in order with the submission of the appeal.
