Kettle keeps counsel as Dublin seek quick hearing

Dublin have sought a swift hearing for the player facing a proposed three-match ban for an alleged biting offence, with next Monday the most likely date.

Dublin are keen to get the hearing with the Central Hearings Committee out of the way well ahead of their preparations for Sunday week's league final.

One daily newspaper named the player facing the proposed suspension as Dublin corner-back Kevin O'Brien, the county's All-Ireland U-21 winning captain in 2012, but Dublin chairman Andy Kettle refused to confirm or deny that identity when contacted yesterday.

"All I can say is that the Central Competitions Controls Committee have proposed a suspension for a Dublin player and that player has sought a hearing. Otherwise we have no further comment," said Kettle.

Donegal made the allegation that Paddy McBrearty had been bitten on the shoulder in the first half of the league match between the sides in Ballybofey on Sunday before last.

The three-match ban has been recommended because the GAA's disciplinary arm contend a 'category three' offence has been committed.

Biting is not specifically mentioned under this rule but it is considered to be an offence covered under the definition "inflicting injury recklessly".
