Croke Park has, reportedly, backed down in the row with Kildare over the venue for their round 3 qualifier with Mayo.

RTE is reporting that the game will now go ahead in Newbridge on Saturday at 7pm.

Despite the GAA's director of games administration Feargal McGill insisting that the original plan to play it as part of a double-header in Croke Park wouldn't change 'under any circumstances', it appears that Cian O'Neill and Kildare have called their bluff.

After their name was drawn out of the hat first in Monday morning's draw, the Lilywhites were adamant that they would only play the fixture in St Conleth's Park.

There has been no official confirmation from Croke Park as of yet but the GAA's ticketing website had stopped selling tickets for the double-header.
