Miscellaneous

  • The Leinster quarter-final between Laois and Carlow ends in disarray and confusion over the score. A late Mick Turley point which gave Laois the lead was later deemed to have been a wide. At a subsequent meeting the Leinster Council voted to adopt the referee's report in spite of television replays showing that the ball had gone wide. Laois offered Carlow a replay of the match, which they subsequently won by four points.[2]
  • Cork being Munster champions for the third year in a row won their seventh Munster title in nine years.
