Kildare GAA will probe the circumstances surrounding the abandonment of Saturday night’s Senior Football League Division 2 tie in Eadestown between the home team and St Laurence’s.

It is the second controversy surrounding a game being cut short by a referee in the space of six months after Niall Colgan’s abandonment of the Under 23 Football Championship quarter-final between Sarsfields and Naas in November.

The decision to award that one to Naas was taken all the way to the Leinster Council by the Newbridge club but they were ultimately unsuccessful.

Saturday night’s game refereed by Henry Barrett was apparently curtailed due to a row with, according to the What’s The Scór app, Eadestown leading Larries by a point (1-12 to 1-11).

No result has been recorded on the Kildare GAA website and the CCC is due to meet on foot of the referee’s report to decide any sanctions that may be imposed on one or both of the clubs if required.

Both sides had won their opening two games in the League and if either are awarded the points they will join Maynooth on six points at the top of the table.
