Waterford's Conor Gleeson will miss the All-Ireland final after opting out of appeal
Waterford's Conor Gleeson has failed in his first attempt to be cleared to play in the All-Ireland hurling final next week and he won't be appealing.
Gleeson went before the Central Hearings Committee last night after refusing to accept a one-match ban for the red card he received after an incident that led to both himself and Cork's Patrick Horgan being sent off in last week's All-Ireland semi-final.
Gleeson had been reported for striking with minimal force but the decision was upheld by CHC.
He has opted against taking a case to the GAA's Central Appeals Committee.
