Armagh’s Rian O’Neill has been cleared for Ulster SFC’s clash with Donegal


Armagh’s Rian O’Neill had averted his proposed one-game ban due to a procedural issue, but colleagues Ciaran Mackin, Stefan Campbell and Aidan Nugent had confirmed similar bans at a Central Hearings Panel last night.

‘Neill has now been cleared to play Donegal in the Ulster SFC quarter-finals next week in Ballybofey, the other trio can appeal their bans.

O’Neill’s proposed suspension comes following an investigation by the Central Competition Controls Committee into a hand-to-hand fight that broke out last month at the end of their game with Donegal at Letterkenny in the last round of the league.

Five players were identified on match report by referee Paddy Neilan and faced with proposed one-match bans, disqualifying them from their Ulster Championship rematch.

At his hearing last night, O’Neill’s legal representative was able to point to a formality in the CCCC case against Armagh’s co-captain that convinced the committee the charges would not stand.

Donegal duo Odhrán McFadden Ferry and Neil McGee accepted their bans to keep them out of next week’s game. Armagh’s Rian O’Neill has been cleared for Ulster SFC’s clash with Donegal
