FINUGE are waiting on Clare referee Rory Hickey's report into last Sunday's straight red card dismissal of Paul Galvin before deciding on whether or not to appeal the punishment given to the Kerry player following an incident in the second half of last Sunday's Munster Intermediate Club Football Championship semi-final victory over Limerick side Pallasgreen in Bruff.
Galvin was sent off along with Pallasgreen midfielder Robert O'Donnell midway through the second half for which O'Donnell was also dismissed for, following a second yellow card.
Speaking to The Kerryman on Tuesday, club chairman Denis McElligott says the club have launched a formal request with the Munster Council to see the referee's report from last Sunday.
"We had a meeting on Monday night and decided to make a request to see the actual report before deciding what to do next.
"That request is gone in to the Munster Council and we hope to have the report by Thursday and meet again and decide what to do from there," the Finuge chairman said.
As it stands Galvin would be set to miss the club's Munster Intermediate Club Final meeting with St Vincents of Cork on Sunday, November 25 in Mallow and also this Saturday evening's North Kerry Championship match between Finuge and Duagh under lights in Listowel, as any suspension would carry over into other games he would be due to play in for his club during the defined period of that suspension.
Meanwhile, the Munster Intermediate Hurling Final meeting between Ballyduff and Silvermines of Tipperary has been put back a week due to the staging of the Ballyduff coursing meeting this weekend. The Kerry side have had to concede neutral venue as a result of the Munster Council granting that request, however, with the final now due to take place in Semple Stadium, Thurles on Saturday November 24.
Club Chairman Anthony O'Carroll admitted that it was a tough compromise for the club to have to make.
"Last year's final clashed with the coursing as well, but it was a bit more manageable because Newcastle West (where the final was played) wasn't too far away from us.
"At the same time we were putting massive pressure on the organisers of the coursing to switch things around to suit so considering the amount of people both on the team and in the club involved with the event we decided to make a formal request to change the game back.
"The Munster Council were willing to accommodate us on the proviso that we agreed to travel to Tipperary to play the final the following week and that's the compromise that we have agreed to make in return," he told The Kerryman.
In other Munster club news, Dr Crokes are waiting to see if full- back Michael Moloney recovers from an ankle injury sustained in last Sunday's East Kerry O'Donoghue Cup semi-final with Spa in time for their Munster Senior Club Championship semi-final meeting with Clonmel Commercials in Lewis Road on Sunday while co-manager Vince Casey is still hoping that midfielder Ambrose O'Donovan can play some part on Sunday despite an injured thumb.
"Ambrose's cast is due to come off on Wednesday (today) and we'll just have to assess his condition from there," Casey said of the Crokes midfielder.
While Colm Cooper will not be travelling on the AllStars Trip to New York due to Sunday's game, some other Kerry players will be in action in Gaelic Park this Saturday evening namely Brendan Kealy, Tomas Ó Sé, Bryan Sheehan and Darran O'Sullivan.
