Rathcline 0-11 Colmcille 2-10

Mediation attempts collapse which probably renders the remainder of the championship academic  >:(

Abbey-Dromard match called off due to the death of the father of an Abbey player.

Longford Slashers 1-9 Carrickedmond 0-7.

Slashers and FMG join Mullinalaghta, Colmcille and Granard in the quarter finals of a tournament that may well never be completed.

Quarter-final draw:

Granard v X
Abbeylara v Y
Longford Slashers v Fr Manning Gaels
Mullinalaghta v Colmcille

We will have more idea of who X and Y will be (or when we will find out who they are) after the DRA meeting on Tuesday night.

1. Player sent off.
2. Referee's report stated that it was a straight red.
3. Referee "corrected" his report to say it was a second yellow.
4. Killoe objected to said player playing against them because of original report.
5. Long dispute last year over this.
6. Referee sent in letter to county board before under-16 final alleging that he had been prevailed upon by certain parties to change his report.
7. Killoe objected to final being played until matter was cleared up.
8. CCC went ahead and fixed final.
9. Killoe notified county board that they would not field in final until matter was cleared up.
10. Final "played" with only one team showing up.
11. Fine issued by CCC.

For the good of their club, Killoe need a complete clear out of their committee. Maybe lifetime bans for their top table.

Not a particular fan of Killoe's diplomacy but the clearout needs to happen elsewhere. Otherwise any other club (barring Clonguish, Ballymore, Carrickedmond and Seán Connollys) could be the next target for the clique of goons. We were a target back in 2010 when we got in Clonguish's way of a quarter-final although the 48-week ban is a new escalation.

Did anything happen this referee? I remember a ref in Cavan getting 6 months for something very similar.
