Meath GAA has issued an apology to Down GAA after an offensive tweet about the facilities in Ballycran.

A tweet from the official Meath GAA account in response to Offaly's 0-21 to 0-18 Allianz Hurling League Division 2A victory over Down referred to McKenna Park as a 'kip' and that it should not host inter-county games.

The tweet, which was swiftly deleted, was condemned by Down manager Ronan Sheehan who later praised the Royals for quickly addressing the issue.

"Coiste na Mí C.L.G. are aware of an offensive tweet coming from our Twitter account this afternoon. This tweet in no way reflects the views of Coiste na Mí C.L.G," the Meath GAA statement read.

"A full investigation of how the tweet was posted commenced in the aftermath of the tweet and is currently underway.

"We have been in contact with the Down County Board apologising for the tweet which was deleted as soon as we became aware of it."
