Annaduff and Bornacoola will contest the Connacht Gold Senior Championship Eighth Place Playoff on Saturday after Drumreilly lost their DRA appeal tonight (Thursday).

Drumreilly had appealed their exclusion from the eighth place playoff to the DRA on the grounds that they were wrongly placed in a relegation play-off when they had qualified for a quarter final play-off having consideration to the criteria determined under the Leitrim Championship Bye-Laws and Regulations 2013 and Rule 6.20 T.O.2013.

However at tonight’s hearing in Carrick-on-Shannon, the DRA ruled against Drumreilly’s appeal meaning that Annaduff and Bornacoola will meet to decide who will be in the quarter-finals with Drumreilly now consigned to the Relegation Semi-Finals.

Drumreilly had originally objected on the grounds that their game was not fixed at the same time as the Allen Gaels v Annaduff game but the DRA is their last avenue of appeal after previous appeals to the Connacht Council were rejected.
