High Court case over Meath goal

A PENSIONER wants to bring a legal challenge over a controversial goal by Meath in the 2010 Leinster football final against Louth.

The High Court case is being brought by Louth fan Paddy Garvey (75) over the awarding of Meath's controversial winning goal in the Leinster SFC final.

Mr Garvey issued a summons under Section 51 of the District Court Rules, compelling the GAA President to come before the court.

His summons was struck out in July 2011. He appealed to the Circuit Court and Judge Alison Lindsay upheld the District Court's decision.

Yesterday, Mr Garvey sought permission from the High Court to have Judge Lindsay's decision judicially reviewed. Mr Justice Michael Peart said he would give his decision next week.
