Cork manager on the game
When asked about Dublin manager Gregory McGonigle’s post-match comments, when he called for a replay, Fitzgerald replied frankly: “He can say what he likes to be honest about it.
“Gregory’s very quick to talk but as far as I’m concerned, we’re All-Ireland champions and that’s that.
“They were on about HawkEye and what not (but) I don’t believe their penalty was a penalty and we could have had one earlier on.
“You take the game on its merits – there are two umpires and the referee has two linesmen.
“If they said the ball was wide, then you have to take…we’ve lost matches over the years, I know myself, with decisions like that.
“The fact that there’s no HawkEye there isn’t down to us, that’s down to the powers that be. There won’t be any rematch, from my knowledge, and I asked yesterday.
“I asked the LGFA and there’s absolutely not, no. The referee’s report is final and that’s that. It’s over.
“I haven’t seen it (Rowe point) but you just have to suck it up obviously."
