Cork chairman Ger Lane has rubbished rumours that breaches of discipline led to the removal of Michael Shields and Ken O'Halloran from the county's senior football squad.
Shields, a two-time All-Star, and goalkeeper O'Halloran were dropped from manager Peadar Healy's panel because the pair had transgressed while at a training camp in Portugal last week, according to reports.
Lane, however, has dismissed the talk of trouble.
“There have been no players dropped for a breach of discipline in Portugal," he told the Irish Independent.
“We had a great week's training, and the lads really applied themselves.”
Cork will play in Division 2 of the National Football League next year, following relegation from the top flight.
