Clare chiefs to publish report

DUBLIN hurling boss Anthony Daly will find out early next week if he is to be suspended after an investigation into the ugly skirmish that marred this year's Clare minor hurling final.

New Kerry senior hurling boss Tom Howard will definitely receive a suspension that could affect his early-season involvement with the Kingdom.

And there is heavy speculation that Daly is also set to pick up a lesser ban after the culmination of the lengthy disciplinary investigation that has been going on for the past six weeks.

Howard was managing Clarecastle against eventual winners Kilmaley when the row broke out and both he and the Kilmaley boss, Niall Romer, were sent off by the referee at the time, which warrants an automatic suspension.

Daly, a Clarecastle selector, was not mentioned in the referee's report, but he has been among several mentors from both sides who have been called before the investigation.

Elsewhere, officials in Sligo are insisting that there are no discrepancies in their finances, despite the fact that county chairman Cyril Feehily has postponed their convention at short notice because their accounts have not been fully audited.

Sligo were due to hold their convention on Tuesday but Feehily postponed it yesterday.
