Dr Crokes GAA club have issued a statement saying that they were not seeking for their supporters to be segregated from Crossmaglen’s at next month’s All-Ireland club SFC semi-final.
Yesterday, the Killarney club appeared to be calling for the two sets of opposing fans to be kept apart, but today’s statement explains what the club had in mind.
The statement reads: “Dr Crokes Club wish to clarify misinformation that appeared in the media this morning regarding that we have requested “segregation of supporters” at the forthcoming All-Ireland club semi-final against Crossmaglen Rangers.
“What the club has requested is an allotment of tickets in a particular section of the stand where juvenile members and their families can sit together as many families had requested this after our Munster final win.
“We’ve brought juvenile members to all our games this year and they have been together for the games.
“However, we believe that there will be a large attendance at the game in Portlaoise and hence our reason for looking for an area where these can be accommodated together.
“All other interpretation of the club’s requests are a misinterpretation of the facts and the club is in no way calling for segregation of supporters.”
