WATCH: NCW Right To Feel Aggrieved After Controversial Nemo Goal

Last Sunday, Newcastle West pushed Nemo Rangers of Cork all the way before eventually losing out 1-9 to 0-9 in Mallow.

Nemo Rangers lead throughout as they held off a dogged Newcastle West side who battled back from five points down early in the second half to bring the game within one score.

In the end however, Limerick’s search for a win in the competition goes on with Drom Broadford in 2008, the last side Limerick to win the Munster Championship.

Newcastle West will feel aggrieved after the loss however, with Ciaran Dalton’s goal early in the second half proving controversial.

On first inspection, the goal looks good with Dalton outside the square when Paul Kerrigan squares the ball to him.

However, watching the tape back and it’s clear that Kerrigan takes at least 10, if not 11, steps before squaring to Dalton.

Kerrigan collects the ball just outside the 13′, brushes past the challenge of Stephen Brosnan and brings the ball to the edge of the small square before passing, all without taking a hop or solo.

WATCH: Controversy surrounding Nemo Rangers decisive goal to end NCW's Munster campaign

WATCH: On Sunday Newcastle West GAA Club were eliminated from the Munster Club Football Championship losing 1-9 to 0-9 to Nemo Rangers, but should the Cork side's goal have stood with the Nemo player surely guilty of taking too many steps? #SportLK

While most players can be guilty of taking more than the permitted four steps, Kerrigan takes almost three times this en route to Nemo’s decisive goal.

This goal put Nemo 1-6 to 0-4 ahead and proved unassailable for the Limerick side.

However, if it was correctly chalked off then we may have a had a completely different game on our hands with Newcastle outscoring the Cork champions 0-4 to 0-2 from the 18th nminute up until the goal.

It begs the question.
