Roscommon's Four Roads have hit out at the choice of venue for their All-Ireland club junior camogie final against Kilmessan tomorrow week.
The final has been fixed for Pairc Tailteann, which is effectively a home venue for their Meath opponents and defending champions. Four Roads say they will play the final anywhere, but believe playing in Navan will give Kilmessan an unfair advantage.
We give our heart and souls for camogie, we live for the game, we would do anything for it.— Four Roads Camogie (@4RoadsCamogie) November 17, 2018
2018 has let us get to an All Ireland Final. The excitement is great, the kids are picking up more hurls.
We wait for a venue and then facebook tells us its basically in the opposing
teams home. We will play camogie as best we can no matter where but surely an All Ireland final should be neutral to give everybody and supporters a fair shot?@OfficialCamogie @Woolberto @offtheball @RoscommonGAA @RoscommoCamogs @DuignanMichael @SportsJOEdotie @The42GAA— Four Roads Camogie (@4RoadsCamogie) November 17, 2018
How can Kilmessan of Meath be fixed to play in Navan in an All Ireland Final? Is this a mistake? Kilmessan is 14km from Navan!! It’s 128km from Four Roads!! Surely a team can’t play an All Ireland Final at a venue in their own County. Please @OfficialCamogie can you clarify https://t.co/ibOdyYDtY4— Michael Duignan (@DuignanMichael) November 17, 2018
