The investigation into the incidents which were alleged to have taken place in this year’s All Ireland Intermediate Football Championship final involving Cookstown Fr Rock’s and Kerry side Finuge has ended with no case to answer.

It is understood that both clubs were asked by the GAA to submit their video footage of the game for investigation by the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC). Croke Park issued a communication to the Cookstown club on Monday morning to confirm that the club had no case to answer.

In the aftermath of the match various video clips were published on social media channels appearing to show indiscretions from both sides. The match which was played in Croke Park on Saturday 9th February was a rather one sided affair which saw Cookstown record a 1-9 to 0-6 win. Team captain Owen Mulligan and Finuge player Paul Galvin both released high profile statements about the game.

Cookstown Fr Rock’s chairman Adrian Gilmore confirmed that that the matter had now concluded. “We’re very content that the CCCC have come to this decision. We’ve had the threat of punishment hanging over our heads for close to four months now. Much of that rumour has been stoked up by elements of the southern media. One prominent member of the press said that bans would be issued a number of weeks ago. What did he know that the CCCC didn’t? We believe that the CCCC officials came to the correct decision for all concerned. I’m delighted for the players and officials that our club has been cleared of any wrongdoing. ”
