The following is a response from the GAC with regard to the issue of Walkovers in the 2006 League.
“The issue in question here has been addressed in the only manner that is feasible by the Regulations that have been approved in March towards the completion of the Leagues for 2006. I agree that if your team receives a WO then it has been in effect disadvantaged. However the most relevant section of the Regulations is at the very end, as posted on the front page of the website, ie a team cannot be relegated or denied the opportunity to play in a league or shield final on the basis of score difference alone. it will only serve to advance the stages of these playoffs and each team is guaranteed at least one play off game, no matter what the issue at hand may be. I presume that is the best that can be done and in effect this is what will happen, as it has been agreed and approved on March 13th 2006 at the March meeting of Coiste Chontae Liatroma. ”
