The game was moved to Carrick at short notice as the Dr Hyde Park pitch was waterlogged and in order to satisfy the Dublin fans stranded in Roscommon, the county's Twitter account advertised a free bus service to bring supporters to the match.

Many Dublin fans, however, complained that they were charged €10 to get on the buses but following an investigation, Roscommon have tonight clarified that there was no supporters charged onto the buses they arranged.

"Following a full investigation Roscommon GAA can categorically state that no person was charged to travel on the complementary bus service provided by Roscommon GAA," read a Roscommon statement this evening.

"Roscommon GAA has however discovered that other people hired buses from Roscommon to Carrick on Shannon. We hope the matter is now closed."
