A report in today’s Irish Times says that the CCCC has decided not to allow Dublin play their AFL clash with Mayo on Friday, March 18.
“There is a player welfare issue to be considered here,” said GAA operations manager Fergal McGill. “Players will have to take time off work in order to play a match which isn’t something we’d like to do if it can be avoided.
“There is also the time factor. The fixture was made last November. The counties had an opportunity to request this but it only came in a week ago. We are obviously not keen on changing it at short notice.”
