Armagh allegations ‘do not accurately reflect what occurred’
Representatives from Armagh and Laois met today to discuss the allegations made by the Armagh County Board this week. Newry Times reported on Tuesday that Armagh officials were claiming ‘racial’ and ‘partitionist’ abuse during the National Football League game on Sunday.
Both county boards agreed that “allegations made by Armagh County Board in their statement do not accurately reflect what occurred in O’Moore Park.” However both acknowledge verbal exchanges did take place. The statement read:
“A meeting of representatives of Armagh and Laois County Boards took place today to discuss last Sunday’s Allianz League Football game in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise. It was agreed that allegations made by Armagh County Board in their statement do not accurately reflect what occurred in O’Moore Park.”
“It is acknowledged by both Boards that inappropriate verbal exchanges took place between players during the game and this will be addressed with our respective panels. Both Laois and Armagh are committed to the playing of our games in the best possible spirit and look forward to the continuation of a keen, sporting rivalry.”
