Tyrone selector Devlin hit with hefty 24-week ban for 'disruptive conduct'
Tyrone selector Gavin Devlin has been hit with a hefty 24-week ban by the Central Hearings Committee (CHC) following his conduct as a supporter during an U-15 game between Tyrone and Down in July.
Devlin, who works alongside Red Hand boss Mickey Harte, was accused of "disruptive conduct by a supporter not causing the premature termination of a game".
The two-time All-Ireland winner has the option to go to the GAA's Central Appeals Committee (CAC) in an attempt to have his punishment overturned, otherwise he faces a lengthy suspension which would rule him out of much of Tyrone's 2020 league campaign.
Former Tipperary hurler Eoin Brislane was suspended for a total of 16 weeks after an incident in a an U-15 tournament game between Tipp and Wexford in August.
Brislane was sanctioned for "using abusive language towards a referee" with a four-week ban imposed, while a 12-week suspension was dished out to the Toomevara clubman for "minor physical interference with a referee".
Much like Devlin, Brislane can also ask for his case to go before the CAC should he decide to do so.
