No appeal for Connolly


Dublin footballer Diarmuid Connolly has decided not to appeal against the 12-week suspension he picked up after the Leinster SFC quarter-final win over Carlow.

The Central Competitions Control Committee imposed a 12-week suspension after the St Vincent's clubman was found guilty of 'minor physical interference' for laying his hands on an official during Dublin's Leinster SFC defeat of Carlow earlier this month.

Connolly put his hand on the shoulder of linesman Ciaran Branagan as they disputed the awarding of a sideline ball following a minor scuffle but no action was taken at the time of the incident.

The Central Hearings Committee reviewed video footage of the incident and decided that Connolly's actions warranted a suspension, upholding the original 12-week ban.

He had the option of taking his case to the Central Appeals Committee but he has decided to accept the punishment.

The forward will be ban until midnight before the second All-Ireland football semi-final on 27 August, which is the game the defending champions will be involved in should they progress in the competition.
