Cavan accept GAA sanctions following pre-match brawl
Published 14/06/2014 | 18:25
Cavan have decided to accept the penalties handed down to them arising out of the parade brawl prior to last Sunday's Ulster quarter final against Armagh.
Two players, Fergal Flanagan and Martin Dunne, have been suspended for one match each and, as expected, will not now challenge the Central Competition Controls Committee's findings. Dunne was due to miss their next match anyway because of a broken hand sustained in the brawl.
A €5,000 fine imposed on the Board has also been accepted, Cavan have officially confirmed as they seek to move on swiftly.
Armagh have already requested hearings for three players, Brendan Donaghy, Andy Mallon and Kieran Toner, who also have had proposed one match bans handed down to them and can expect to have their cases heard early next week.
