An inter-county Gaelic footballer has failed a drug test, the Sunday Independent understands. The player allegedly failed the test after a National Football League game in February.

The player, who is in his 30s, was tested after the recent game as part of Sport Ireland's anti-doping programme.

The Sunday Independent understands that the player in question has recently removed himself from the county squad's WhatsApp group.
