McInerney welcomes Bannon availability

February 10, 2019

Like Father, like son. Joe and Joseph Cooney and Gerry and Gearóid McInerney at the Tony Keady Fund match at Kenny Park, Athenry.

Gerry McInerney has welcomed the news that Alan Bannon will be available for Oramore/Maree’s All-Ireland club IHC final against Charleville at Croke Park this afternoon.

The corner back has had the red card he received in the semi-final win over St Gall’s rescinded and McInerney believes justice has been done.

“He didn’t strike so we were fairly confident,” the Oranmore/Maree manager and Galway legend told the Connacht Tribune.

“If he had struck, we would have no issue, but he didn’t. So it’s great to have him. For an All-Ireland final, it would have been wrong if he wasn’t available. Now, often in the past, players have missed out in the wrong, but we are lucky.”

Throw-in at GAA headquarters is 3.15pm.
