GARRYCASTLE and Crossmaglen face an anxious wait to see if they receive any retrospective disciplinary action from Saturday's drawn AIB All-Ireland club final.
Paul Dillon squared up to a Crossmaglen opponent with his forehead in the early stages and, under rule, any 'attempt' to strike with the head is a serious offence. Crossmaglen's Aaron Cunningham shunted an opponent over the advertising hoarding later, which could be interpreted as dangerous play.
The fact that referee Rory Hickey issued each with a yellow card at the time means they will probably escape any further sanction, but the Central Competitions Control Committee ( CCCC) could yet decide to investigate them.
The CCCC will announce a date and venue for the replay today. It is believed that Parnell Park, Pairc Tailteann and Kingspan Breffni Park have all been considered, with Navan tipped to get the game on Saturday week, March 31.
Garrycastle will be without Rory McGowan, who is undergoing a pre-scheduled medical procedure.
Crossmaglen will have their captain Stephen Kernan back after he missed the drawn game due to suspension; they were furious that his name was taken out of the official programme last weekend.
The replay extends Garrycastle manager Anthony Cunningham's hectic dual schedule.
Cunningham also manages the Galway senior hurlers and, after Saturday's drama in Croke Park, he was in Gort at 8.0 the next morning to travel to Pairc Ui Chaoimh with them.
The four-point defeat of Cork leaves Galway in joint second place in Division 1A and gives them a great shot of making the top three who will contest the semi-finals. They face Waterford next weekend and then Kilkenny on April 1 -- likely to be just 24 hours after the big club football replay.
