The referee who will officiate the All Ireland hurling semi-final between Kilkenny and Waterford on Sunday has been hit with a one-month ban.

Brian Gavin was punished for remarks he made to a match official after a club match in Offaly.

He has appealed the decision which means he will be the man in the middle at Croke Park on Sunday, but should the appeal be unsuccessful, he will be ruled out of contention for the the All Ireland final.
