Watch: St Annes Considering Appeal After ‘Ghost Goal’ That Was Not Awarded

St Annes GAA Club in Wexford are considering appealing a decision from their quarter-final match against St Martins over the Bank Holiday weekend…

As reported in the Irish Independent by sports journalist Colm Keys, St Annes are considering appealing the decision not to award the goal from their clash with St Martins.

St Martins would eventually go on to win the game after extra time, with the game being decided by penalties in the end.

The video, which was shared onto social media by former Wexford footballer Redmond Barry, has been viewed online over 110,000 times at the time of writing.

The video shows Aidan Rochford’s 40th-minute strike going towards the corner of the net before it hit the St Martins’ goalkeeper’s hurls which were placed at the corner of the goal.

“We don’t know, it’s a tricky one, the balance between winning and losing the right way,” said St Annes’ manager, Doc O’Connor.

“We think the video evidence is conclusive. There is obvious disappointment that a goal has been denied in this way, by something that is essentially not part of the game.”
