Daly banned for four weeks
GAA: Dublin hurling manager Anthony Daly has been given a four-week ban by the Clare county board for his part in the fracas that marred the county’s minor hurling championship final.
Kilmaley’s one point win, 1-16 to Clarecastle’s 1-15, on October 27th was overshadowed by a fight that broke out on the sideline towards the end of the game at Sixmilebridge.
Both clubs have been fined €3,000, while Clarecastle manager Tommy Howard, who has since been named Kerry manager, has been given an eight-week ban.
Kilmaley's Niall Romer has also been banned for eight weeks, while Daly's fellow Clarecastle selector Stephen Sheedy received the same punishment as the Dublin boss.
Each party has until Thursday to lodge an appeal after being informed of their bans last night.
The bans are expected to run from today, meaning pre-season duties for both Daly and Howard could be hampered, while the latter is unlikely to be on the touchline for the opening fixture of the Waterford Crystal Cup against IT Tralee on January 20th.
