Farrell anger but Murphy let off

MEATH forward Brian Farrell hit out at GAA disciplinary chiefs on Twitter last night after losing his appeal against the red card he received in the Leinster quarter-final, WRITES JACKIE CAHILL.

Farrell was sent off for an incident with Kildare's Emmet Bolton but the controversial decision of referee Syl Doyle has been upheld -- which rules the player out of the qualifier against Louth on Saturday week.

Farrell's automatic four-week ban for a straight red card stands and on Twitter last evening, the Nobber clubman revealed: "Attended appeal on red card. It's not been overturned, "as it is probable the offence occurred".. absolutely ragin!"

Farrell found sympathy from fellow Meath attacker Cian Ward, who replied: "What a waste of time lad..very unfair!"

However, Michael Murphy's appeal against his red card against Cavan was successful, making him available for Donegal's Ulster semi-final clash with Tyrone.
