Ulster GAA to investigate allegations from final

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Ulster GAA last night released a statement in relation to establishing an investigation into alleged events at Sunday's AIB Ulster Club Championship final.

The statement is as follows:

"At tonight's meeting of the Ulster GAA Competitions Control Committee it was agreed to establish an investigation into alleged events at Sunday's Ulster GAA Club Final based on the contents of the referee's report. A group has been established to conduct the investigation and will be reporting back to the CCC in due course

"There will be no further comment on this issue until the investigation is complete."

Yesterday, Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Liam Ó Néill reiterated his commitment and that of the association to stamping out any form of racism, and any other form of abuse, which may occur within the GAA.

"This is a wider issue and it gives us a chance to do something significant. If we pull it off it will be a benefit to sport in general," he said.

"Anybody who is demeaned in any way, by involvement in our games, is a source of regret to us. And we don't want it.

"We're going to take a calm look at this, for a couple of months, then take a motion to Congress that will bring about an end to this. If you're not allowed to shout abuse at someone on the street, you shouldn't be allowed to do it on the pitch either.

"I think it's probably enough to suspend people – we might go through an education programme before they are allowed back. I'm not sure is that feasible to do with the rules, but the club that has players who use abuse should be made hold a programme for their players to re-educate them."
