The Tyrone and Donegal county boards have both been fined €5,000 each following on from the ugly scenes after the half-time whistle was blown in their Ulster SFC preliminary round clash.

Tyrone assistant manager Gavin Devlin has also been hit with a proposed eight-week ban.

Should the suspension be upheld, Devlin will not be allowed on the sideline for the Red Hands opening game in the All-Ireland qualifiers on June 27.

No players from either county were singled out for punishments arising from the incident, which occurred as both teams left the field at half-time.

Both counties have the option of appealing the punishments.
