THERE could yet be a Fingal Gaels team in this year's Dublin Senior Football championship with the Dublin county board due to discuss the motion at its next meeting.Speaking after last Tuesday's Blue Stars challenge in Blakestown, county chairman Andy Kettle explained the reason the proposal was turned down at last month's county committee meeting, which scuppered chances of the motion being debated by members at the AGM a week later. 'It was turned down at the December meeting because the new regulations were not in force. And if you had rescinded the minutes it would have meant nothing as the new regulations weren't voted in.' Meanwhile Kettle also confirmed that the Fingal hurling team will have something to play for this season. 'There will be promotion out of Division 3 this year. It wouldn't be my ideal way of doing it but the winner of Division 3 plays the bottom team from Division 2 [in a play-off].' The issue of whether Fingal will return to the Nicky Rackard Cup after a season in exile still remains unclear. 'I have made the case to central council to enter a team but I wouldn't hold out much hope. 'We would have to have a look at the local fixtures first and if anything was happening reentering a team for the Nicky Rackard we would have to ensure that it didn't interfere with local fixtures. 'We will try to plan around it, but it doesn't always work.'
