Waterford to play Offaly at neutral venue after losing Walsh Park appeal

Waterford to play Offaly at neutral venue after losing Walsh Park appeal

Waterford's opening game of the Allianz Hurling League against Offaly will now take place at a neutral venue after the Déise lost their appeal to have the game played in Walsh Park rejected.

Waterford were challenging a ruling that saw them lose home advantage, along with three other counties, after breaching rules on training camps.

The rule states a county cannot hold training gatherings except in the 10 days prior to a championship match. They lost their appeal on Monday, according to Irish Examiner reporter Eoghan Cormican. 

A replacement venue is yet to be confirmed.
