Donegal won’t appeal suspensions from Armagh game

Donegal GAA has confirmed that it won’t be appealing the proposed suspensions for Odhran McFadden-Ferry and Neil McGee following last Sunday’s end-of-match fracas at O’Donnell Park in Lettekenny.

Players and mentors from the Donegal and Armagh camps became involved in a melee after the final whistle of their Division 1 league game.

McFadden-Ferry and McGee, along with the Armagh trio of Ciaran Mackin, Aidan Nugent and Stefan Campbell, were all hit with proposed one-match suspensions.

The five players are set to miss next month’s Ulster Senior Football Championship Quarter Final between the counties on Sunday, April 24 in Ballybofey.

In a short statement published on Friday, Donegal GAA said:

“Following consultations last night between the county board, team management and player representatives, CLG Dhún na nGall accept the referee’s report on the Donegal v Armagh Allianz League Round 7 fixture last Sunday in O’Donnell Park. Consequently, Donegal will not be appealing the suspensions handed out to Donegal players.”
