There was some bad news for the Dublin Senior Camogie team today with the Camogie Association confirming that Dublin or Clare's fate in the All-Ireland Championship will be decided by a 'coin-toss'.

Lots will be drawn tomorrow morning at 9:30am to see which team goes through to the quarter-finals to face Wexford on Saturday, meaning that the 'winner' will have just three days to prepare for what is a crucial tie.

You can watch the draw on the official Camogie Association HERE in the morning when the names of both counties will go into a bowl and the first to be drawn out goes through to the last-eight.

The sides had finished level on points and couldn't be seperated in Group Two of the round robin by their head-to-head leaving the sides with the final option of drawing lots.

The Association said last week that the procedures were “pre-determined” and “were agreed by Ard Chomhairle in November 2014.”

Both counties had lodged appeals against the process after Clare's win against Derry on Sunday but to no avail with the Association stating that their Disciplinary Committee hasn't got the power to overturn the decision of the Ard Chomhairle.

The decision to toss a coin has been criticised by many including former Dublin hurling manager Anthony Daly and Dubs camogie boss Shane O'Brien.
