CCCC REIN IN FIX­TURE

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT - BY PAT NOLAN

THE Tyrone-ca­van Divi­sion One Foot­ball League tie has been resched­uled for Sun­day March 12. The re­fix­ture will take place at Healy Park in Omagh, which was deemed un­playable af­ter in­ces­sant rain­fall on Sun­day, al­beit there was some con­ster­na­tion that the call wasn’t made un­til about an hour be­fore the sched­uled 2pm throw-in. It means both coun­ties will face games on five suc­ces­sive week­ends up to the fi­nal round of fix­tures on April 2. Tyrone’s Divi­sion 3A Al­lianz Hurl­ing League tie with Done­gal, which was also called off yes­ter­day, will now go ahead on March 19, also at Healy Park. Mean­while, the run­ning or­der for the All-ire­land club fi­nals has been con­firmed by the CCCC with later throw-in times than usual, 3pm and 5pm, at Croke Park on St Pa­trick’s Day. As has been the case ev­ery year since from 2008 on, the hurl­ing fi­nal, be­tween Cuala and Bal­lyea, gets un­der­way first and will be fol­lowed by the foot­ball de­cider fea­tur­ing Slaugh­t­neil and Dr Crokes, which will now be com­pleted un­der flood­lights.
