The board confirmed that they are appealing the final result on two grounds: first, that a point for their side in the first half had not been awarded, and secondly that referee Cathal Egan played an additional two and a half more minutes of injury time than the four minutes that had originally been assigned.

They believe that they have video evidence to prove that a ’45 taken by Kate Kelly earlier in the game, which had been ruled wide by the referee, was in fact a legitimate score.

The game ended with a one-point win for Galway (1-14 to 2-10) after Niamh McGrath pointed in the seventh minute of injury time.
