PARNELLS GAA HAVE accepted relegation from the Dublin SFC 1 after the Coolock outfit conceded their relegation play-off, which was scheduled for Sunday.
The relegation double-header dogfight was scheduled for O’Toole Park with Parnells down to face Lucan Sarsfields and Clontarf due to go head-to-head with St Oliver Plunkett’s-Eoghan Ruadh, but both fixtures have been called off after Parnells gave a walkover.
The club of All-Ireland winning captain and goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton will now drop to the Dublin SFC 2 after losing their three group games by a combined total of 48 points.
Subsequently, Bernard Brogan’s St Plunkett’s, Jack McCaffrey’s Clontarf and Lucan Sarsfielfds have all retained their senior A status for 2019.
