Donegal club to appeal eight-week ban for hosting charity tournament
NAOMH COLMCILLE are set to appeal an eight-week suspension from adult competitions after hosting a charity soccer tournament.
The club, from Newtowncunningham in Donegal, were suspended after holding an “unauthorised tournament” and were also handed a fine of €500 for breaching the rule, having reportedly been denied permission for the event.
The fundraiser was organised to help Paul Dillon, who played and coach with the club and was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease recently.
